Follow in these Footsteps

Footsteps: African American Heritage a Cobblestone Publication; September/October 2005 (not the issue shown here).

Got the Blues?  Get this issue of the magazine!  Blues music is covered in great, entertaining detail—from what it is to who’s performing it and where to go listen to it live.  Along with biographies of famous blues artists are the instruments typically used to play the blues—and a song for the children to play.  The short articles are geared more for upper elementary or even middle school aged children, but the images are great at telling the stories of the blues.

I would probably tie this in with a music program, like the jazz program described elsewhere in these reviews.  I think a subscription to this magazine is a necessary addition to the collection in the children’s department of all libraries.
