This audio-and-picture-book combination creates a seamless collage of color and sound, with a vibrant message of limitless dreams. Dion Graham’s confident, enthusiastic narration powerfully depicts a young African-American boy who is beginning to identify who he is in the world. Quincy Tyler Bernstine adds a dynamic array of female voices. No detail is overlooked in this production. The background music lends a sense of anticipation to the opening credits and underscores the story with its laid-back groove. Realistic sound effects link the audio to the pictures and reflect the story’s urban setting. Best of all, the book is fun! Its compelling poetry invites the audience on an adventure of self-discovery. A.M.R.
