This book was published in 2002 and is a biography. The book is about a little girl who goes through her life of singing, but also mentions and emphasizes the hardships that she goes through in her life. One of them being her father passing away.
Aside from this, the book has beautiful illustrations and story telling. The songs that were sung by Marian are in the book and italicized so one is able to really read and interpret the songs sung.
“Church folks started whispering and followed with out-and-our talking about Marian‘s remarkable gift.”
A good biography to have in the classroom. Has lots of diversity and expression of talents.
