STAFF PICK OF THE MONTH
by Walter Dean Myers
This exuberant book on jazz, a truly homegrown American art form, features the poetry and illustrations of an award-winning father-son duo. The rhythmic poems by Walter Dean Myers beg to be read aloud while the vibrant artwork of Christopher Myers bursts off the page. A brief introduction highlighting the history of jazz, a glossary of jazz terms and a time line of important dates in jazz history are also included.
