When Louis Armstrong Taught Me Scat by Muriel Harris Weinstein - OPTIONAL


Weinstein, Muriel Harris When Louis Armstrong Taught Me Scat. Chronicle Books, 2008. PICTURE BOOK. 

EL - OPTIONAL

Follow the main character as she learns how to scat from her mom and then Louis Armstrong, the master himself. Follow her as she dreams about scat, dances scat, and even teaches some others how to scat. 

Fun illustrations, but they do not supplement text well. Text is hard to follow and a little confusing. Would work well in a classroom setting with a teacher who is trying to teach the students about the different types of music or about rhythm.
