PICTURE BOOK PICK OF THE WEEK

*****




BOTTLE CAP BOYS
by Rita Williams-Garcia, illustrated by Damian Ward; Marimba Books (2015)





Clickity, clack, clack,
Tipity-tap, tap tap.
A bottle cap slam and bam. A dance duel, New Orleans style, as two brothers dance it out on Royal Street “’cause who dances best eats good tonight.”




This picture book “tribute to the city and its youngest artists” has great rhythm and cadence, making it fun to read aloud.


Did you know that the Mardi Gras colors of gold, green and purple represent power, justice and faith? This and other interesting facts about New Orleans shared in the Author’s Note and Reader Tip Box at the end of the book.
