KIRKUS REVIEW

 From the author's first book, Black Feeling, Black Talk (1968), a brief (68-word) poem describing summers spent with her grandparents in the mountainous country setting where she was born, presented with attractive illustrations reflecting the poem's sense of family love and community strength. Johnson makes a fine picture book debut with richly hued impressionistic double spread oil paintings, but--at least for those with limited budgets--the price seems high for the limited content. (Poetry/Picture book. 4-8)
