Opening with a spirited rendition of “This Little Light of Mine,” one of Fannie Lou Hamer’s favorite hymns, narrator Janina Edwards’s lilting performance is immediately entrancing. She authoritatively reads Weatherford’s Sibert Honor-winning free verse poems in a style and cadence rich with references to the rural South. Although this is not, technically, a read-along, listeners can easily pick up a copy of the book and follow the text while enjoying its award-winning collage illustrations. This production includes an author’s note, read by the narrator, as well as a timeline, source notes, and other resources. This audiobook would make an excellent introduction to the sounds of the Civil Rights movement. S.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2016]
