Little Town Tea's Book Corner
Duke Ellington, by Andria Davis Pinkney, is a biography of Duke Ellington for children. When I came across this book I instantly fell in love with it. I did a big project on this for my children literature course. If you are an elementary teacher or a parent with young children buy this book and read it to them. It is for grades 3-5. Make sure to also pick up a CD by the Duke so that your children can hear him play, and I am sure you wouldn't mind turning it on and listening to it yourself.
