Excellent book! I think elementary age children would thoroughly enjoy this biography of a young African-American musician growing up in New Orleans. It is an engaging story of a modern jazz musician whose music is easily accessible today.

Troy Andrews grew up in the Treme neighborhood of New Orleans where money was sparse but music flowed in the streets. He picked up a discarded trombone when he was very little hoping to join in tune with the many musicians in his family. His brother saw him carrying an instrument larger than he was, and dubbed him Trombone Shorty. Trombone Shorty did join in whenever he could, including a Bo Diddley concert at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and he played so well that the famous musician brought him on stage. This colorful book shares the story of a Grammy nominated musician whose dream came true with a little practice and passion.
You can hear the music of New Orleans coming through the words of this book! It's so fun and the pictures will spark conversations between parent and child. This is a great, creative read aloud book.
