Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Vanessa Newton was a little girl of only three when she found a box of crayons and wished to be an artist. She used many surfaces as canvases, such as white walls and the sides of the kitchen stove. At school, Vanessa met a teacher/artist who encouraged her and now she is living her dream. She is largely self-taught, though she has attended art school in New York. She lives in East Orange, New Jersey with her husband, their seven-year-old daughter, and a fat cat named Kirby.

I love this book! Taking the simple lyrics of `this little light of mine' and juxtaposing it with the people that shaped the civil rights movement makes for an understandable, age-appropriate treatment of a very important time in U.S. history. Since the book is targeted for 4-8 year olds, the message is clear that each one of us can make a difference. Just look at Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Barack Obama. Let your light shine. The illustrations show the joy of the music flowing through the book's characters as the sing the song and change history.
There were people, in spite of the things going on around them, who did let their lights shine. One December 1, 1955 Rosa Parks let hers shine. When Dr. King "had a dream" when he spoke in Alabama on December 4, 1955 he had a dream. People who boycotted the buses and walked the routes in Montgomery, Alabama during this era let their lights shine. Civil rights were starting to shine through many individuals, but children still had to drink their water from separate fountains. The Little Rock Nine, The Greensboro Four, Ruby Bridges, people who marched on Washington, Lyndon Johnson and Barack Obama all came together in their own ways so the little children could sing together . . . "This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine."
This is a beautiful book to read to young children about the importance of those who let their light shine for civil rights. This book has a powerful message and I liked the way the theme of equality and civil rights for all was executed. It is in a picture book format, which may be over the heads of our youngest children, but is perfect for the intended age group. In the front of the book there are snippets of songs relative to many things such as attending school, "serving time in jail," or "sitting at lunch counters" that were sung in the 1950s and 1960s. There is a list of eighteen people who have found "their inner light." This would be an excellent read and discuss book in the homeschool or classroom setting!
