Jazz is a colorful poetry picture book that gives readers a look into the exciting world of jazz music. The book starts off with a brief introduction of the rich history of jazz. It draws on that history through a series of poems. These poems depict all things jazz, from styles to musical instruments to prominent musicians. This book not only encourages readers to appreciate jazz but to understand its profound history. Myers provides a glossary of jazz terms used in the poetry found at the end of the book, as well as a timeline of important jazz events ranging from 1800 to the present day.
