About this product
- DescriptionThrough poems and poetic prose pieces, acclaimed children's author Arld Adoff celebrates that uniquely American form of music called the blues. In his signature shaped speech style, he creates a narrative of moments and joyous music, from the drums of the ancestors, the red dirt of the plantations, the current of the mighty Mississippi, and the shackles, blood, and tears of slavery. Each chop of the ax is a beat, each lash of the whip fashions ather line on the musical staff. But each sound also creates the chords and harmonies that preserve the ancestors and their stories, and sustain life, faith, and hope into our own times.
