Books

Django 

We read this delightful book in class last week. The children were interested in Django’s story and how he came back from a horrific injury to his left hand to become one of the world’s greatest guitar players.

 The Carnival of the Animals

This book, with new verse by Jack Prelutsky, and illustrations by Mary GrandPré, has a companion CD. This will be our book for class on September 28.

 Strange Mr. Satie

Hilarious depiction of one of the first “surrealists.”
