    One thought on “Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band”

    1. A rhyming tale about a rooster who starts a jazz band. What I liked most is that all the animals are named after a famous musician (Duke Ellington, Ella Finchgerald, etc). There's a glossary in the back that explains who each animal is named after as well as a timeline of jazz. This would be great to use in music class-pair it with Chicken Dance for a rocking musical animal storytime.

    2. This is just a delight to read. The illustrations just pop and the parents in storytime will get a chuckle out of the Barnyard Jazz greats. :)

    3. Ha ha ha! Okay, so I read an excellent children's book that I recommend for anyone to read, especially if you love farm animals and music! The Acoustic Rooster wanted to be a star so he practiced all summer on his guitar. He knew that Farmer held a talent contest every year to find the best farm band there is. The story is told in rhymed poetry as the rooster goes around talking to other animals to see if he can join their band: Thelonious Monkey's crew, Mules Davis, Ella Finchgerald, Duck Ellin [...]

    4. Following a jazzy rhyme scheme, Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band finds Acoustic Rooster looking to join and then build a band to compete in the farm's annual band talent show.

Kwame Alexander also includes a great deal of factual information in the back, including a musical instrument glossary, brief biogr [...]

    5. Summary: Acoustic Rooster puts together his jazz band to try to win the barnyard prize.Why I Read This: Kwame Alexander is coming to town.Review: I actually really liked it. The rhyme scheme fit the jazz theme well. Plus, I love the educational program as Alexander played with the names of jazz greats.

    6. A very musical rhyming book. I like the idea of teaching kids that it's ok to not win every time. That even in losing, you can take away something good from your experience. My only knock on it is that no kid is going to get the jazz references, nor will they care when they are explained to them.

    7. again, music = life. Great glossary, timeline, and description of famous and influential jazz performers at the end!

    8.

    9. Acoustic Rooster is a fun book with colorful illustrations and plenty of musical jargon to introduce the kids to. There is also plenty of rhyming words for the kids to point out and have fun with. They could play a musical cooperation game to the tune of jazz music by some of the artists slyfully mentioned in the book as having animal monikers. Since the pictures are so vivid the kids who would want to read to themselves and look at the pictures to make their own story. Depending on the grade an [...]

    10. An acoustic rooster wants to join a jazz band to enter the Barnyard Talent Show. He meets a bunch of animals with jazz-inspired names -- Mules Davis and Ella Fingerald -- and the animals party to their jazz music. The story is a fun picture book introduction to jazz and the author includes musical vocabulary, brief notes about the musicians, and a jazz timeline. Recommended for preschool through grade 2, depending on instructional purpose. The story is a bit confusing and the rhymes a bit forced [...]

    11. As a former music major, I thoroughly enjoyed Acoustic Rooster. It's a great book for introducing jazz to the elementary school crowd (and maybe some older readers.) The rhymes are fun and make for a great read-aloud. The illustrations are enchanting and add to the tone of the book. The jazz glossary, descriptions of jazz era "musicians, characters, and music," and jazz timeline at the end of the book make this book an even better addition to elementary music libraries. I can't wait to share thi [...]

    12. Beautiful pictures illustrate this fun and insightful look a music through the story of the acoustic rooster.

They introduce the reader to famous musicians such as Billie(Bee)Holiday and Duke(Duck)Ellington and to various instruments as well. The is a glossary in the back with musical vocabulary and information about the famous people mentioned in the story.

    13. Acoustic Rooster is the story of a musical chicken who starts his own jazz band in order to enter the farmers talent contest. He's the rockinest chicken around and even though he doesn't win first place, he has a great time. There are lots of references to past musical legends and in the back of the book there is a great glossary of musical terms, a page of the musical legends mentioned, and a musical timeline.

    14. I love all the jazz references will definitely have to share this one with our music teacher. As other reviewers have mentioned there is some nice back end matter a glossary and an explanation of some of the references.The illustrations were a lot of fun as well.Only complaint is that the rhymes felt a little forced. Not as bad as some books but still not quite there. So it's a high three stars just not quite at the four or five level.

    15. Fun story about Acoustic Rooster who starts a band for a jazz contest. This one will find a tough time finding a young audience to appreciate the plays on names and songs, but the message will ring true: somtimes, it's finding friends and doing what you love that's more important than winning. There is a timeline and glossary in the back to share jazz history and explain the references in the book.

    16. I adored this story. The rhyme is fun and flows nicely, the storyline delivers a nice message without being too obvious about it, and the references to jazz greats throughout the book are hilarious. The factual information in the back that goes into more detail about jazz and some of its icons is the icing on the cake. This book is a winner.

    17. A rooster living on a fantasy farm participates in a talent show starring all of the awesome animal jazz musicians! Featuring funny puns and great illustrations, elements of this book bring to mind the recent animated film, Zootopia. Adults will enjoy it as much as kids. Veg*n families note: A pig is given the nickname "Pork Chop."

    18. This fun, rhyming story about a rooster and his band is a great introduction to jazz musicians. With plays on names that will make the adults chuckle (Mules Davis, Duck Ellington), it also contains information on each of these musicians in the back, as well as a timeline of jazz history. Recommended for grades K-2.

    19. Acoustic Rooster wants to be the best at the barnyard talent show. He decides he's going to form a jazz band. He finds Pork Chop the percussionist, Bee Holliday for vocals and Duck Ellington for piano. Even though they get second place at the talent show Acoustic Rooster knows he has the best band.Glossary of jazz terms and musicians included.

    20. Kids may not get all the references to amazing musicians, but they will enjoy the rhymes and will relate to a character who just wants to play in the talent show. Really fun illustrations go along with the fun rhyming tale!

    21. This book is an excellent introduction into the jazz greats of the century. The rhyming format of the text will introduce children to the concept of phonological awareness. I also really love the illustrations.

    22. The music teacher at my school is going to love this book that I recently won from the author himself by answering a questions about The Crossover. The additional musical information in the back was very helpful for readers.

    23. Cute story with lots of fun jazz references. Also includes glossary, timeline of jazz history, and list of noteable jazz musicians. Would be a great read-aloud in a music classroom. Or for a fun jazz program at the public library.
