The creators of Jazz ABZ are back for an encore! With infectious rhythm and rhyme, musical master Wynton Marsalis opens kids’ ears to the sounds around us.

What’s that sound? The back door squeeeaks open, sounding like a noisy mouse nearby — eeek, eeeek, eeeek! Big trucks on the highway rrrrrrrumble, just as hunger makes a tummy grrrrumble. Ringing with exuberance and auditory delights, this second collaboration by world-renowned jazz musician and composer Wynton Marsalis and acclaimed illustrator Paul Rogers takes readers (and listeners) on a rollicking, clanging, clapping tour through the many sounds that fill a neighborhood.

The narrator is a little boy from New Orleans and he tells us all about his life and culture through the different sounds he hears in a day. From squeaks to grumbles to tlocks, tlicks, and tlacks, this book is like a song with the most interesting sounds the world around us makes. Read full review

User Review  - YMcMillion - LibraryThing

This is a good book to teach students sounds that items make, it is not so much a good book to test for content and comprehension, but it is more of an entertainment book. I think that young readers will have an enjoyable time with this book and learn a lot about things and their sounds. Read full review
