I have to say, I loved this book. If I can get the cadence and the rhythm down, I’m reading this at a story time. I read this the same day that I read Animal Band by Christopher S. Jennings, and what a difference between the two. Jennings’s drawings are lively, but there’s just something missing to make it extra special. The Jazz Fly is extra special, a great example of musical creatures. Who knew that jazz would work so well in the animal kingdom? I think kids would like both books, but as a grown up Gollub’s is the one that really came alive for me. Next week I’m doing a Silly Stories program, and maybe I can work this in if I practice my voices. I’d love to see the kids try some of the sounds for themselves.
