Hallelujah!

A CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION

Illustrated by Synthia Saint James

A sprinkle of stars

A flock of sheep

A shadowed wall.

A host of angels

A warmth of doves

A royal crown.

A father's smile.

A mother's touch.

And a black baby Jesus.


In a series of simple, evocative images, W. Nikola-Lisa takes readers on a journey toward the Nativity, with a black baby Jesus as its centerpiece. Synthia Saint James's vibrant colorblock paintings capture the mystery and anticipation of this journey and of the birth of a newborn king.
