George Gershwin heard music all the time --- at home, at school, even on New York City’s busy streets. Classical, ragtime, blues and jazz --- George’s head was filled with a whole lot of razzmatazz! With rhythmic swirls of words and pictures, author Suzanne Slade and illustrator Stacy Innerst beautifully reveal just how brilliantly Gershwin combined various kinds of music to create his masterpiece, Rhapsody in Blue, a surprising and whirlwind composition of notes, sounds and one long wail of a clarinet. Includes author’s note, timeline and bibliography.

Thomas Jefferson was more than a president and patriot. He was also a planter and gardener who loved to watch things grow --- everything from plants and crops to even his brand-new nation. As minister to France, Jefferson promoted all things American, sharing corn and pecans with his Parisian neighbors. As secretary of state, he encouraged his fellow farmers to grow olives, rice and maple trees. As president, he doubled the size of the nation with the Louisiana Purchase. Even in his retirement, Jefferson continued to nurture the nation, laying the groundwork for the University of Virginia.
