Publisher Description:

Follow Ray Charles's rise from humble beginnings, overcoming hardship, loss, and blindness to become the undisputed king of rhythm 'n' blues. Each spread relates a different stage of his life, and key moments are captured by evocative photos from the time and Rémi Courgeon's beautiful illustrations. The narrative of the book is recorded on the accompanying CD, as well as 15 of the singer's most emblematic recordings.

Category Description for First Discovery Music Series:

Just lovely! Illustrations and photos, engaging text about the life of the composer and interesting information about instruments and pieces they wrote are just lovely! Add in that you are listening to the music as you read and you have a lesson your kids won't soon forget. Colorful hardcover books have little notes to the reader about things to consider or to try such as listening to nature and thinking of it as a symphony or thinking about how emotions affect music and guessing the emotion behind a particular piece. Artists are always interesting folks, even back in the 1700s their lives were not always normal. I liked how the information is about the instruments and other musical instruction beyond the biographies. In the back is listed the CD content, each having about 11 songs. As you read, there is a note on the page of what number song on the CD corresponds. Books are 7.75"x 7.75" 28pp, hc ~Sara
