O holy night The stars are brightly shining It is the night of our dear Savior's birth.
Painting from the heart in a time when the world longs for peace, Faith Ringgold has created art that celebrates the hope that came to all people on a silent night in Bethlehem. Her jewel-toned paintings are imbued with the spiritual vitality of the Boys Choir of Harlem's joyous renditions of five of our most beloved Christmas carols, and will be treasured for their spirit of wonder and love.
A perfect way to enhance the holiday season, O Holy Night gives families the chance to hear the glorious voices of the Boys Choir of Harlem while experiencing the radiant art their singing has inspired.

Pres-Gr. 3. O Holy Night, which has the lyrics of five carols, including "Silent Night" and "O, Come All Ye Faithful," comes with a CD featuring the Boys' Choir of Harlem singing traditional and soulful versions of the songs. Illustrator Ringgold's paintings, set against backgrounds of sky blue and ruby red and decorated with touches of gold, feature an African American Holy Family who are visited by dark-skinned wise men and shepherds, and angels of all races and colors. The folk-art style imbues the characters with a humanity that brings them close to readers. This is especially true of the playful baby Jesus, whose godliness is also addressed as he cavorts with cherubs and angels.

PreS Up–The lyrics for "Silent Night," "O Come, All Ye Faithful," "O Holy Night," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," and "Joy to the World" are accompanied by richly colored paintings depicting a dark-skinned holy family and a multiethnic cast of shepherds, angels, and Wise Men.

The book begins with the text of Luke 2:1-20 from the King James Version of the Bible (in very small font) and is accompanied by a compact disc of the five carols, sung by the Boys Choir of Harlem. A lovely holiday choice.–E. M.
