The words and music to 20 spirituals are accompanied by luminous full-color paintings. Ashley Bryan's art provides a lush, visual interpretation of well-known songs such as "I'm Going to Eat at the Welcome Table," "Peter, Go Ring the Bells," and the title song, "All Night, All Day." This is a welcome addition to Bryan's earlier children's books interpreting this distinctive African-American contribution to the music of the U.S.A. (All ages)
