Love and family. These are the things that a little girl finds most special about Sunday mornings. Early Sunday Morning follows the weekend routine she shares with Mommy, Daddy, and brother Troy as she prepares for a special performance leading the children’s choir at church on Sunday morning.
She collects helpful pieces of advice on how to be less nervous about her big solo. Along the way, she visits the barbershop with Mommy and Troy, gets her hair done by Mommy, receives a special dress from her aunt, and shares her family ritual of getting ready for Sunday morning service. As her special moment approaches, she leans on the support of her whole family, in particular the advice from her father, to conquer her fear of singing in front of the congregation.
Early Sunday Morning is brimming with gorgeous illustrations created by Vanessa Brantley-Newton and full of heartfelt lessons that highlight:
- Themes of conquering fear
- A loving, supportive family and its weekend rituals
- The impact of culture and vibrant social gatherings on child development
- The special bond shared between fathers and daughters
Early Sunday Morning is a heartwarming celebration of the special time a young girl and her family share together as she learns how to lift her mighty voice.
