West Africa's vibrant colors and sounds come alive in this interactive musical storybook depicting the touching tale of a small bird who must face her biggest fear. Children will love adding the sounds of Haja's heartbeat, the wind, and the rain on the mango leaves. A companion CD includes a djembe drum jam track, an audio book of the story, and the instant classic song Fly Haja Fly, performed by author Julia Jordan Kamanda and students from J3 Music Studios. Students will be able to explore and practice learning sounds and rhythms and identify colors and patterns. The separate teaching guide offers step-by-step multicultural lesson plans and hands-on learning activities to enhance the story. A digital download code is included for access to story map images, activity templates and recordings. The activities are aligned to national core curriculum standards and integrate music, math, and language and visual arts.
