Ashti Meets Birdman Al

Add this book to My Bookshelf


Carmen Rubin







This heart-warming story is about Ashti Freeborn, a multicultural, pudgy 9-year-old who is smart, creative, and energetic. Ashti and her mother spend a day in the park and chase a unique sound that leads them to an old man who is singing and scatting with the birds he feeds every morning. He tells them about his love for Jazz and his concerns about the loss of his former school's music program. They come up with a great idea that will keep children and music connected and the school from losing its program.
