MIM'S CHRISTMAS JAM

Andrea Davis Pinkney, Author, Brian Pinkney, Illustrator , illus. by Brian Pinkney. Harcourt/Gulliver $16 (32p) ISBN 978-0-15-201918-1

In the Pinkneys' (Duke Ellington) hands, a tasty family tradition and New York City history make a flavorsome pairing. It's 1915, and Christmas just isn't the same when Pap must be away from Mim and their children while he works to build the New York City subway system. But a jar of Mim's "belly-hum jam" unexpectedly works its own small miracles. Vibrant scratchboard compositions skillfully contrast the dank underground construction site with the warmth of home. Ages 3-7. (Oct.)
