Jazz Baby

Written by: Lisa Wheeler and R Gregory Christie

First line: Brother's hands tap.

Why you should read this book: It's a rhyming book that creates the rhythmic sense of jazz music with bouncing text. A large extended family of especially musical individuals enjoy singing and dancing while jazz baby plays along, adding the occasional, "Go, man, go!" to the mix. A great crowd-pleasure among the young set, who will appreciate baby's antics even if they've never heard jazz music.

Why you shouldn't read this book: Your upstairs neighbors are always stomping around in combat boots.
