SummaryAdd a Summary
From the very first page Ashley Bryan’s vibrant images just leap at you. Three spirituals vie for your attention. In “This Little Light of Mine” children are seen carrying lights in all kinds of containers and sources as the words to the song appear below. With each verse, Mr. Bryan finds an eclectic way to bring these lyrics to life. The same can be said for the other songs as well. Within an ever shifting series of hues, tones, shades, and colors, people are seen praying and singing. They laugh and dance. “Oh When the Saints Go Marching In” shifts from light to dark and the book ends with a blow-out production of “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”.
