Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2–4—Using an alphabet book structure, this slim volume offers its readers a basic introduction to jazz. The opening two-page "Story of Jazz" provides background to set the stage for the alphabetical one-liners: "A is for America's Music. It ab-so-tive-ly began with African American rhythms. And how!" Bold, geometric illustrations always include an artistic interpretation of the featured word and its letter hidden within: Benny Goodman's arm makes a "G" and Jelly Roll Morton's tie creates a "J." Many pages feature asides highlighting jazz slang and vernacular: "They put on their glad rags and got a wiggle on!" "When this jazzman picked up his licorice stick, he could really groove." Pages highlight important people, places, instruments, musical terms, and expressions that play a role in jazz history, including "Floorflushers," " Improvisation," "Kansas City," and "Zoot Suits." Always a complicated letter, "X" stands for "aXe," which readers may need to refer to the extensive and helpful glossary to understand. A bright and serviceable first dip into this genre of music.—Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Ann Ingalls passes the day exaggerating (writing fiction) or telling the truth (writing nonfiction).

She has written nearly fifty books for young readers. Her books have won several awards: The 2015 Annual American Graphic Design Award and the Ella Fitzgerald Foundation’s “A Book Just for Me!” When given the choice between educating children or entertaining them with her writing, Ann chooses to do both! Before she was a children’s writer, Ann taught elementary and special education classes and worked as a parent educator. Ann’s students enjoyed rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, canaries, salamanders, fire belly toads, and what seemed like millions of fish. Three new titles are forthcoming in 2020, 2021, and 2022. Ann lives in Kansas City with her husband, Winston. Please visit her at http://anningalls.com.
