BENNY GOODMAN AND TEDDY WILSON: Taking the Stage as the First Black-and-White Jazz Band in History

Educators’ Guide featuring questions for classroom discussion and suggestions for further exploration.

“A solid exploration of a resonant musical partnership at a historically significant moment in American music.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“The lyrical prose infuses the book with the spirit of jazz. . . . The illustrations are realistic and . . . seem to blur together at times and swing like the music that Teddy and Benny play.”
—School Library Journal
