Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Mitchell
This book is all about hip-hop music. It draws attention to highlights from the history of hip-hop, including what music it developed from, what musicians have made the genre popular, and more. This book also explains what instruments are involved in making the music. Additionally, this book introduces readers to details of the music's production and helps readers learn how to write their own rap. This book offers readers an art activity and a hands-on activity, specifically a step-by-step guide to becoming a "human beat box." The book also explains how to hip-hop dance and provides the reader with guidance about how to hold a beat-boy/beat-girl dance competition. This book is highly engaging, with its short chapters and colorful graphics. It is a must-have for any music teacher's library; it is also great recommended reading for reluctant readers and music lovers. The last pages of the book provide the curious reader with information about additional sources for learning more about hip-hop music. Reviewer: Jennifer Mitchell
