Trombone Shorty by Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews


Books about children playing instruments? SIGN ME ALL THE WAY UP!!

There is nothing better than seeing a child find his calling in life and doing that thing like she was born to it.  That’s why I love Trombone Shorty! I read this cute little picture book last year and this year it was awarded the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award!

Collier’s illustrations beautifully capture important events in Andrews’s life, as well as the spirit of his beloved city and the music that is at the heart of both New Orleans and Trombone Shorty…

I love this book so hard because there are illustrations of adorbs lil Shorty holding his trombone for all the glorious parades in The Big Easy. You’ve GOT to read this book; there is so much inspiration (and CUTE) in this picture book. Qualifies for the Diversity Reading Challenge for African American Illustrator.
