From the Back Cover --

This is a fun and colorful new book, a story of the vital importance of jazz  music and its place in todayís early education. Relayed by a young and fun-loving girl, Ashti, itís the story of Al, an elderly and talented jazz musician who inspires Ashti and her mother to organize a benefit evening at Al's former elementary school, to keep music alive and very, very well in the local schools.

Readers have already enthusiastically noted the value of the story and its vivid presentation that engages child and adult readers alike. A few of their reviews to date, say:

"That book is amazing!" - Jaden, 7 yrs old.

"Wow, Ashti looks like me and Birdman Al is someone I would want to meet!" Tristan, 9yrs.

"It is a wonderful book that my children can appreciate for generations to come." Connie, mother of two.

At the end of the book, Carmen has incorporated a list of legendary singers and musicians, along with some information on jazz instruments, as an added educational component of the book. This draws young readers in and teaches them the importance of music appreciation and preservation.
