Let It Shine: Three Favorite Spirituals, by Ashley Bryan

Three familiar African-American spirituals are exuberantly presented with brightly colored cut paper collage illustrations. Music for the spirituals follows the text.

Second. The bright, beautiful illustrations in this book compliment the three well-known spirituals. Great for music classes and for history tie-ins. For example, a line from This Little Light of Mine is mentioned in the book, Birmingham, 1963. Great opportunity to pull out Bryan's book and share the entire spiritual with students.
