Doo-Wop Pop

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Bryan Collier. Once the lead singer of a doo-wop band and now a school janitor, Mr. Searle ("He's old but cool") encourages bashful and lonely students to "collect all kinds of sounds" and turn them into music. Schotter's rhythmic text begs to be read aloud, while Collier's thoughtfully composed collage art reflects the story's uplifting messages about creativity and self-fulfillment.
