In this awaited sequel to The Jazz Fly, Gollub welcomes young readers to Spanish language and Latin jazz. In fact, he introduces forty zippy Spanish phrases to thoroughly entertain children of all backgrounds. The first Spanish word is "pachanga" which is like a fiesta only with more music, more energy, and more dancing till all hours!
(Contains CD and FREE AUDIO DOWNLOAD!)
Gollub's MUST-HEAR CD features the same instrumentation as the first Jazz Fly (sax, piano, bass and drums), with the addition of congas, bongos, timbales and more played by master Latin percussionist John Santos. Follow the computer enhanced illustrations deep into the rain forest, decipher the spoken words of exotic fauna—but watch out for the dangers that lurk around the termite nest. Like the Fly, and the author himself, you'll be glad you learned to speak a second language!
"[Gollub] gives educators useful information and ideas." --School Library Journal "Nicely enhanced by the bouncing narration and Latin rhythms on the accompanying CD." --A.L.A. Booklist "The cross-cultural interplay of scat and Latin rhythms wins. Que bueno!" --Kirkus Reviews
