I See the Rhythm by Toyomi Igus, Michelle Wood


I See the Rhythm by Toyomi Igus, Michelle Wood

Gospel music explained for children with stunning pictures and historical context. This award-winning picture book invites children along to dance to the rhythm of swing at the Savoy in Harlem, to rejoice to the rhythm of gospel from a church pew on a Sunday morning, and more. Each stunning spread - including art, poetic text, a description of the music style, and a time line of selected historical events - encompasses the spirit of the times and the strength of the communities where the music was born. Toyomi Igus's lyrical text, matched with artist Michele Wood's daring vision, captures the feel of each style of music and pays tribute to the musicians who gave the music life.
