Bird & Diz

Bird and Diz

Written by Gary Golio, Illustrated by Ed Young


This story is a tribute to the creators of bebop: Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. The illustrations are amazing and the words help you get into the musical patterns and beats of the bebop style. This would be a great read aloud along side some of the musical masterpieces of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. The pages of the book are connected and accordion out. It makes it a little bit of a challenge to read and something to consider as a library book.

This book received two starred reviews from professional journals.
