Jazz riffs sizzle beneath illustrations and text, begging kids to imagine the notes and the feelings. CHARLIE PARKER PLAYED BE BOP is an experiential work, not simply afforded added dimension by the recording, but literally brought to life. Hearing Parker's "A Night in Tunisia" is essential to this rich experience. Raschka himself adds wonderful commentary that offers children a window into his process in creating this book by representing the music in line, color, and words. His introduction to Richard Allen's musical reading is certain to enhance the listening experience. Lucky are the children who read these groundbreaking picture books with the volume turned up! T.B.
