Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is the first children's book about the origin of Hip-Hop in the Bronx. The book is archived at Purdue University and Fordham University African American Studies Program. Kool Herc, Africa Bambaataa, Grand Master Flash and other pioneer's are written into the story based on researched facts. Students love it.

Great children book. You will love the rich Bronx and hip hop history. Creative illustrations by Bronx students themselves. A one of a kind book.

Format: Paperback
Amazing book! Just right size to bring the reader into the story, while keeping your and your student's attention along with understanding how Hip Hop began. Great, colorful illustrations. My students were able to identify with DJ Kool Herc as a child being picked for being different, an immigrant. Towards the end, he became a role model, by making such a huge impact in history and the music world. I loved the fun Hip Hop curriculum with a host of suggested activities on the publisher's website, already aligned with Common Core Standards.

As an educator myself, I was very impressed with the originality of the subject matter and with Mr Cornish's writing style. This book should be incorporated into classroom curriculum everywhere.
