What a wonderful collaboration for the senses! Kadir Nelson combines colors—rich and vibrant or soft and warm—and striking images for a book that celebrates community at all levels. Add to that Crystal Taliefero's sympathetic arrangements and singing, and this is truly a work—or several works—of art. Taliefero's voice weaves and climbs, changing rhythm to match each verse and illustration. The clapping accompaniment enhances the story’s spirited tone, and the children's voices added to the narrator's make for a multigenerational, inclusive performance. This book, which celebrates our connections to our world, our families, and our communities, will delight and connect listeners everywhere, of all ages. A simple gem! W.L.S.
