The power of music transforms a small cafe. May 25, 2008
Juke Box is a picture book from France. My 5 year old son loves to look at the pictures. The Juke Box is located in a little restaurant. People come in with their money to play a song and the place is transformed into the scene in the music. Each person has a favorite and in many instances the person is defined by the music they like whereas other times the music the person will like is a surprise. The book shows the transformative power of music.

David Merveille's Jukebox is as much fun as a hootenanny. The fun all takes place in a little French looking café where the music brings people together. Each person puts his or her coin in the fancy, old jukebox and magically, wonderful music comes out. The words on each two-page spread are limited to the name of the type of music--cleverly drawn into the picture. One young man likes hip-hop and another gothic. The waiter likes marches and a quiet matron likes to sing Madam Butterfly. I can feel the styles of music from looking at the illustrations.
I do wish this came with a CD of music styles, but it could be a fun interactive activity to find music of the various styles in CDs already sitting around the house, from the library, or online. This book is a great addition to any music loving family's library.
