A is for Audra

Bringing light to the glowing ladies of the stage, this week’s read by John Robert Allman and Peter Emmerich.

Summary: What easier way to learn about the glittering stars of Broadway’s fascinating history than with an ABC primer for children? Featuring such women as Barbara Streisand, Lea Salonga, and more, this delightfully illustrated picture book counts down some of the most famous names in musicals past. For adults and children alike this is a delightful way to either be introduced to or connect to the world of musical theater – and the stars that populate it. From modern femme fatales to classic screwballs, there are plenty of unique roles and talented performers who filled them to discover, whether this is your first time encountering them or not.

My Thoughts: Charmingly illustrated with a pleasing color palette, this is a read that is enjoyable to look at as well as read. As a mild fan of musicals, especially classic ones, this was a gem of a read, a clever way to introduce younger readers to the theater. I definitely recommend it.
