Read full description of the books:
Being a former musician in high school and college, I thought this children's book was really cool. I must admit though, I was the tiniest bit upset that it didn't feature the instrument I used to play: the clarinet. But, that's bias for you.
Journey to Jazzland is about Windy Flute and her group of friends as they travel together to a place where they're allowed to play whatever type of music they want. It's got a little bit of the "Town Musicians of Bremen" thrown in there, I think. Not only is it a cute story, but it also attempts to break down the musical technicality of jazz into layman's terms that children will understand. And I think Journey to Jazzland does this very well. A book should not only entertain, but educate.
The one thing this book desperately needs is a sound track. All that talk of music made me want to hear it in the background as I read. Maybe an audio version is in the works? Kind of a Peter and the Wolf type of thing?
