Sunday is LaTasha's favorite day of the week. She loves the sound of the church organ, the sweet harmonies of the choir, and the rich voice of the preacher. In this delightful story about LaTasha's day at church, award-winning author Nikki Grimes' vibrant poetry and Michael Bryant's vivid illustrations teach children to love Jesus and joyfully celebrate his day! The 14 poems in this book celebrate a day of worship as seen through the eyes of a child. Recommended for ages 5 to 8.
Softly, quietly begins the day of the week that, for LaTasha, is always full of glorious sounds: the pipe organ, tambourine, and drum; the footfalls of ushers marching down the aisle of the sanctuary; the sweet harmonies of the choir; and the rich vibrato of the preacher’s voice. LaTasha sings along with the congregation, confident that Heaven hears each joyful note.
Sometimes funny, sometimes serious, Nikki Grimes’ poems and the lush tapestry of colors in Michael Bryant’s illustrations celebrate a day of worship viewed through the eyes of an exuberant little girl.
