Drum City - Thea Guidone, Vanessa Newton

Drum City by Thea Guidone illus. by Vanessa Newton

This is a fun story that begins with a boy in a yard. All the kids use whatever is handy and procede to drum down the street.

"Drum Jump to the sound, dance all around, loud on the tubs and the tins that they found."

Guidone's rhythmic text will have readers wanting to get up and move. Newton's colorful and beautiful illustrations depicts a diverse city and brings all the characters to life. Guidone and Newton have come together to create a wonderful story.
