Sometimes it’s difficult to find quality Christian children’s books. There are some umpteen bazillion Christian publishers out there, many of them churning out books for kids every year. Still, once in a while you need to look outside this closed little world to find the real gold. Let it Shine will make so many people happy. People looking for a great selection of music. People looking for something Christian. People looking for a title that’ll involve African-American history and a great contemporary artist. It’s all here and it’s all bound to make a whole host of folks very very pleased. As I may have said before, cut paper doesn’t usually make my little heart go ah-pitter pat, but for Ashley Bryan I will make an exception. Stamp a big old “NECESSARY PURCHASE” all over this puppy.

From the very first page Ashley Bryan’s vibrant images just leap at you. Three spirituals vie for your attention. In “This Little Light of Mine” children are seen carrying lights in all kinds of containers and sources as the words to the song appear below. With each verse, Mr. Bryan finds an eclectic way to bring these lyrics to life. The same can be said for the other songs as well. Within an ever shifting series of hues, tones, shades, and colors, people are seen praying and singing. They laugh and dance. “Oh When the Saints Go Marching In” shifts from light to dark and the book ends with a blow-out production of “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”.
