Reviews - What do customers think about O Holy Night: Christmas with the Boys Choir of Harlem?
'Tis the Season Jan 15, 2005
Some holiday songs focus on reindeers, Santa, even snowmen while others, such as O Holy Night, focus on the true religious story behind Christmas. In the book O HOLY NIGHT: Christmas with the Boys Choir of Harlem, illustrator Faith Ringgold, has used her artistic talents to bring the lyrics to these more spiritual Christmas songs alive through her paintings. Other songs featured in the book include: Hark the Herald Angel Sing, Joy to the World and Silent Night. In addition, the book opens with an excerpt from the Bible (Luke 2:1-20) describing the birth of Christ. There is also an accompanying CD that features several selections, including the title song, by the Boys Choir of Harlem. Children have the opportunity to absorb the subtle richness of the artwork and read the lyrics to the songs, all while listening to the young and very talented choir.
This book a wonderful way to remind children that Christmas is not a commercial event, rather a spiritual one. O HOLY NIGHT doesn't present anything new, but instead breathes new life into the story of Christ's birth and classic Christmas Carols. The combination of Faith Ringgold's fabulous artwork, the melodic voices of The Boys Choir of Harlem, and a deeply moving song, result in an enjoyable multi-sensory experience. Furthermore, it is a valuable tool parents can use to teach their children about the true meaning of Christmas. I plan to incorporate this book into my regular holiday traditions.
