Summary
Overview: What began as a spiritual has developed into one of America's best-known songs, and now for the first time it appears as a picture book, masterfully created by award-winning artist Kadir Nelson. Through sublime landscapes and warm images of a boy and his family, Kadir has created a dazzling, intimate interpretation, one that rejoices in the connectedness of people and nature. Inspired by the song's simple message, Kadir sought to capture the joy of living in and engaging with the world. Most importantly, he wished to portray the world as a child might see it-vast and beautiful
Summary
An illustrated version of the well-known song that began as a spiritual and is now sung in churches, camps, schools, and has been recorded by opera singers, country artists, and children's performers
