Description: It's harvest time and in this story, Kim Siegelson, also the author of In the Time of The Drum introduces the sacred tradition of ring shouts, a call-and-response style of song and controlled movement passed down through the years from enslaved Africans in the U.S. As the traditional celebration nears, young Toby, the main character is finally old enough to join his family in the circle for the ring shout, but he can't seem to find an instrument that would speak from his heart to God's ears. Pap has a drum to make music; Grand has a cane to tap; Pearl has a gourd to shake. (32 pgs) Ages 4-8
Ashay says, "This book's illustrations are bright and colorful with appropriate text. It has a Caribbean look and feel and is cause for celebration. Add it to your library today."
