Come Sunday, by Nikki Grimes, describes the routines of a young girl through a series of poems. The main day that is discussed throughout the series of works, is Sunday. On this particular day, LaTasha is woken up by her mother to get ready to go to church. The poems describe each process of her day, from waking up, to the ladies hats, to church supper. Each poem clearly expresses the feelings of the young girl, and her feelings towards going to church; which are all mostly positive.

Come Sunday is a collection of poems about a young African American girl and her Sunday experiences. She attends Baptist Church with her family and each poem is a description of her experience. From waking in the morning, to the church supper these exciting poems remain entertaining.
The pictures are exceptional, and would be excellent for a read aloud. They tell the story accurately and clarify the readings.Not only was the story told by the visible pictures, but the words continuously created

This is a book of various poems about a little African American girl who describes what happens on Sunday mornings.

I absolutely love the way Nikki Grimes write her books. She does them in a series of little poems that make the story easy to read and follow. I like this story by her in particular because I remember the Sunday mornings I had to wake up and prepare to go to church. Grimes capture the little things such as getting your hair combed and braided Sunday morning. This story can be used for the following purposes:

Come Sunday is a narrative poem about a little girl's point of view of her day at church. Every topic she talks about is in a short poem. She talks about the hats the women wear to church. She talks about the old lady that greets her, the white gloves her mother wears, baptism, her offerings and how sometimes she hopes no one is watching her hold some back. She also talks about the church supper and the lady preacher and at the very end about Sunday evening and how its time to go. I enjoyed this ...more

Oh my gosh - I can't believe we didn't have this at school- I thought we owned nearly everything by Nikki Grimes. I love it! And I got to hear it for the first time read by my extremely white little boy, which just added to my enjoyment. Will be buying for school ASAP.
