Jazzmatazz!, a picture book geared toward the preschool set, features a jazzed up toddler who is in tune to music and movement.

In this story, a mouse comes into a house to escape the cold weather, begins to play jazz on the family piano, and gets the whole household rocking (and rolling). Eventually, the frenzy spreads until the whole neighborhood joins in.

'Mouse points to Dog,
With his bones and bowl.
"I play my drum with
My heart and soul!"
Doo-dat, Diddy-dat,
Diddy-dat, doo!
"I bang-a-bang, bang!
How about you?"

Full of onamotapoeia, simple text and bright illustrations, this lively picture book will get your youngster's toes tapping.
