Her classics include A Friend Is Someone Who Likes You, which was a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year. She had sold over 45 million books worldwide.In 2015 a United States Postal Service stamp was issued commemorating the American author and poet Maya Angelou with the Joan Walsh Anglund quote "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song", though the stamp apparently attributes the quote to Angelou. The quote is from Anglund's book of poems, A Cup of Sun (1967). President Obama also wrongly attributed the sentence to Angelou during the presentation of the 2013 National Medal of Arts and National Humanities Medal.
