Miles the Crocodile

Submitted by Tess from Lexington Park!
Want to raise a jazz lover? Have I got the book for you: Miles the Crocodile Plays the Colors of Jazz by Andy Blackman Hurwitz and illustrated by Andrew Cunningham! Miles is a trumpet playing crocodile here to demonstrate "that the colors of jazz can make beautiful art" through words, pictures, and music! The book comes with a CD of jazz music that corresponds with the story. My favorite track is "Blue Jazz Blue" in which Miles sings the "I Ain't Got No Cookie Blues" lamenting "I got my milk, but I want my cookie too!" If you like this kit, look out for other books in the "Baby Loves Jazz" series like Charlie Bird, Duck Ellington, and Ella Elephant. See this book listed in our catalog
