Summer Sun Risin'

By Black Issues

(Black Issues Book Review) Summer Sun Risin’ is a lively picture book that captures the sights, sounds and activities of an African-American boy’s day on his parents’ farm. Author W. Nikola-Lisa manages to cover a lot of ground in a small amount of space. Illustrator Don Tate pushes beyond Nikola-Lisa’s verbal guidelines by including visual grace notes that add dimension to the characters.
