This Little Light of Mine
One of the best known and most uplifting African-American spirituals is brought to life by the Coretta Scott King Honor-winning illustrator in this picture book which tells the story of a boy whose inner light shines from the inside out. Includes the song's score.
This book illustrates the traditional song beautifully with the expressions and actions of a joyful young African-American boy, who greets all he meets with kindness and warmth. The book ends with the boy meeting a downcast young man and inviting him to play and meet his friends. "in keeping with the refrain of the spiritual, light fills the pictures, brightening and warming the day and shining from the face of the boy and the people he meets." - Booklist
