O HOLY NIGHT: Christmas with the Boys Choir of Harlem

Domain Public, Author, Faith Ringgold, Illustrator . HarperCollins/Amistad $18.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-06-000979-3

Hark! Angels—and the angelic voices of the Boys Choir of Harlem—harmonize in an illustrated collection of five traditional carols that comes packaged with a CD recording of the songs. Ringgold (Tar Beach ) conjures hosts of racially diverse white-winged heavenly messengers. She depicts the Holy Family and the Wise Men as people of color in a series of folk-art-inspired acrylics. In each painting the texture of the underlying canvas shows through, reflecting the humble and deliberate mood of the proceedings. All ages. (Oct.)
