Item description for Come Sunday by Nikki Grimes & Michael Bryant...
Overview A little girl describes her typical Sunday from the moment her mother wakes her up through the different elements of the worship service in church.
Publishers Description 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Come Sunday?
Charming and heartfelt May 16, 2005
Spunky LaTasha loves her Southern church, the ladies in their beautiful hats, where "Mommy's chocolatey-brown skin peeks through the white-lace gloves she likes to wear." Each page has a poem and a watercolor of part of the congregation's experience, from baptism to Sister Beverly, the visiting preacher, to the church supper of "collards and ham and honey-glazed yams, fried chicken and black-eyed peas, and pumpkin pie." This book shows the joys of belonging to a religious community.
