Check out APOOO Book Club's 12 Days of Christmas Book Giveaway. And if you're looking for a last-minute gift for a child or a jazz-lover, Karen Simpson suggests Sweet Music in Harlem. She says:
Debbie Taylor is a wonderful author of children’s books and stories. As her writer buddy and friend I watched her picture book Sweet Music in Harlem ( Lee and Low 2004) grow from an idea, to a manuscript, to a book with illustrations by the wonderful artist Frank Morrison. Sweet Music in Harlem is based on the famous photograph Great Day in Harlem. Debbie was inspired to write her story by the line of children sitting on the curb in the original photo. This is a great book to introduce jazz to young and old alike. Check out her website.
