Early Sunday Morning is the first offering from Denene Millner Books, the new children's line published under Agate's Bolden imprint in partnership with Denene Millner, the noted parenting authority, editor, and New York Times bestselling author. Love and family. These are the things that a little girl finds most special about Sunday mornings. Early Sunday Morning follows June, Mommy, Daddy, and brother Troy through their weekend routine as June prepares for a special performance leading the children's choir at church on Sunday morning. Readers spend the weekend with June as 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, June leans on the support of her whole family, as well as advice from her father, to conquer her fear of singing in front of the congregation. 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Early Sunday Morning

"Millner sensitively reflects her heroine's performance anxiety and warmly details the traditions of this churchgoing family . . . . Brantley-Newton's glowing mixed-media images capture the love shared among the members of the girls' family and the jubilant atmosphere of their church." --Publishers Weekly

"This uplifting story celebrates courage and love. Brantley-Newton's energetic illustrations add a perfect visual complement in their affirming depiction of this tight-knit family. Moreover, children who love singing will find much with which to identify." --Booklist

"Features vibrant illustrations from Vanessa Brantley-Newton that show the warmth of Black family life. . . . If the first three tomes are any indication, Denene Millner Books will continue to highlight the best talent and reads for an audience who truly deserves both." --Essence

"As entertaining as it is inspiring and very highly recommended." --Midwest Book Review

"If you are searching for an uplifting book about love and family to share with your child, I highly recommend Early Sunday Morning." --The Parenting Patch

"It's definitely a charmer; in fact, once you've read 'Early Sunday Morning' once, you'll be singing its praises, too." --Terri Schlichenmeyer, The Bookworm Sez

"We really enjoyed reading this adorable book! The thing I love the most is that it highlights a situation children (of all races) might encounter in their everyday lives. . . . The colorful, hand drawn pictures are so detailed and beautiful adding even more life to the story. . . . A beautiful story." --Here Wee Read
