    "A departure from Faith's usual fare, this book takes a more higher-level picture of the diverse people of America. Its a great way to teach kids about both the country's history, as well as where people of other ethnic backgrounds come from."

    "Saw a documentary on PBS about crafts and Faith Ringgold was one of the artist's featured. She talked about her book, Tar Beach, and I knew i had to get it, so I went to the library and checked it out. I enjoyed it thoroughly and resolved to get all of her books. I love how she uses color to fill the entire page. Having had family who lived in NYC, I was familiar with NYC rooftops and wasn't sure my southern grandchildren, who live in the country, would appreciate Tar Beach. So, I'm starting them with her, Aunt Harriet's Underground Railroad in the Sky. I would recommend all of her books."

    "Painting from the heart in a time when the world longs for peace, Faith Ringgold has created art that celebrates the hope that came to all people on a silent night in Bethlehem. Her jewel-toned paintings are imbued with the spiritual vitality of the Boys Choir of Harlem's joyous renditions of five of our most beloved Christmas carols, and will be treasured for their spirit of wonder and love"
