Review

cover art

Vibrant cut construction paper collages illustrate this inspirational picture book/song book. The words of "This Little Light of Mine," "When the Saints Go Marching In" and "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" accompany the full double spread illustrations. At the end of the book the author has included the music and an afterward about slavery and the origin of the spirituals.

Winner of the 2008 Coretta Scott King award this book is great for sing-alongs and individual reading. The illustrations are also great for inspiriting kids and adults alike to get out their scizzors, construction paper and glue sticks and to start collaging. The author also won the Coretta Scott King Award for Beautiful Blackbird.
