Charlie Parker Played Be Bop

We were first introduced to this jazzy picture book when my nephew William was about Gunnar's age. It was William's favorite book...he'd walk around saying "Be Bop" and ask you to read it over and over again.

It reads with the rhythm of a jazz riff and it gets stuck in your head. Perhaps that's why Gunnar "reads" half of the book now...adding "Bop" "Bang" "Bone" saxo"phone" "znnznn" and more!

Chris Raschka is an award winning picture book author and illustrator...and well he's St.Olaf graduate too. Check it's groovy!


  1. My boss has been telling me about this book since I was pregnant!

    1. It's awesome! You've got to get a copy for Jo!
