DESCRIPTION: When you hear tambourines, horns and drums that make you want to move your feet and a salsa breaks out on the dance floor it’s a sure sign that the Mambo King is in the house!
WHY I LIKE THIS BOOK: Tito Puente was born to make music and make music he did. This Harlem born virtuoso showed early signs of his great talent and shared this gift around the world over the years of his amazing career. Monica Brown’s lyrical text matched with the stunning images of Rafael Lopez reveal the energy and joy that present whenever Tito took the stage. This is a great read to inspire those young artists who have a passion for music but may need some guidance in discovering the best outlet for their gifts. Its definitely a story that will send your spirits soaring and bodies moving! So clear the way for the Mambo King and let’s dance!
