My 13-month old is OBSESSED with this book.,
This review is from: Charlie Parker Played Be Bop (Paperback)
I purchased this book because I love Charlie Parker and wanted to share that love with my then 6-month-old son (he's been listening to Charlie Parker on Phil Schaap's Birdflight since he came home from the hospital).
It immediately became his favorite book (he has over 100) and INSISTS that it be read to him 4-5 times per day. Frequently, we will have just finished it and he reaches for it again. One of his first 7 words is pa-ka (Parker)...it is his first two-syllable word! I would teach him to say "Bird," but I think that would confuse him right now. :-)
The pictures are wonderful! I particularly like the one of "Charlie Parker Played No Trombone" which shows Bird looking at a trombone and scratching his head.
The words and sounds are wonderful and convey the feeling and flavor of "Be Bop."
My son particularly loves the mysterious kitty...
My son is now 13 months old and it's still his favorite book BY FAR!
