Django: World's Greatest Jazz Guitarist

Some people might think that picture books are not very informative.  But, in addition to amazing illustrations some picture books some introduce you to amazing people and stories.  That is exactly what happens in Django: World's Greatest Jazz Guitarist; Bonnie Chrisitensen tell the story of Django Reinhardt from the day he was born to the days when his life gets back to normal and he starts playing the guitar again.  I liked this book because it gave me information about Django and it was full of beautiful illustrations.  This wonderful story won the 2010 Schneider Family Book Award Young Children's Book, another great reason to check it out!
