Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp!: A Sonic Adventure

Submitted by Ms. Tess!
Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp! is billed as "a sonic adventure," by jazz musician, composer, and advocate Wynton Marsalis, and illustrated by artist Paul Rogers. It is a celebration of all the "music" we hear (and probably take for granted) on a daily basis. The "noises" we hear as we go about our day, from the squeak of a door (or a mouse), to the rumble of a truck (or your tummy), have a beautiful musicality to them, if you take the time to appreciate it. What else makes great sounds? The knife across your bread as you butter your toast? The nails on your shirt when you scratch an itch? Marsalis also treats us to the sounds of music being made on instruments you might hear: violins plucking, trombones sliding, trumpets blaring... The world is truly full of beautiful music! Read this book with the child in your life, and then go listen to, or better yet make, some music of your own! See this book listed in our catalog
