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.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4. Fourteen short poems narrated by an African-American girl that concentrate mostly on preparing for and going to church with family and friends. From her mother's gentle wake-up call to her bedtime prayers, LaTasha is caught up in the spirit of the Paradise Baptist Church. Sunday is a long day filled with different experiences, and readers share this appealing child's observations on all of them, from the "Blue-Haired Ladies" who greet her with pinches on the cheek; to the joy of her "Baptism;" her confessional, "My Offering," when she admits that she gives God his due unless she needs an ice-cream cone; and the tasty "Church Supper." LaTasha is a religious child, but her experiences are not unique to her Baptist upbringing, except in the two poems, "On the March" and "Jubilation," which catch the lively musical experience of this traditional black church. Bryant's lively watercolors reveal a congregation caught up in its worship. The people are of all ages and are dressed in their most colorful best. Light flows through stained-glass windows, and the minister's Afrocentric-style vestments add another touch of color. Grimes's topical poems are short and down-to-earth enough to engage children and occasionally will sweep them along with a bouncy rhythm or a spark of recognition that brings LaTasha's Sunday to life. Both the text and pictures evoke a celebration of one ethnic and religious group.?Rosanne Cerny, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
