A joyful, rhyming celebration of music and community, Bing, Bop, Bam: Time to Jam! is an upbeat picture book from the creators of Ride, Roll, Run: Time for Fun! that follows nine children as they help plan a big musical block party.

Sounds soar!
Tunes galore.
Music trance . . .
Gotta dance!

Author and educator Valerie Bolling’s rhyming text makes for a rollicking read aloud and features instruments from all around the world, including agogô, banjo, daegeum, djembe drums, double bass, erhu, maracas, piano, steel drums, and trumpet. Sabrena Khadija’s stunning, colorful illustrations depict the joy of dancing, playing music, and feasting with neighbors and friends. Readers will clamor to plan jam sessions of their own!

Valerie Bolling is the author of Ride, Roll, Run: Time for Fun!; Together We Ride (which received starred reviews from Booklist and The Horn Book); and Let’s Dance! (winner of an SCBWI Crystal Kite Award). In addition to being an author, Bolling has been an educator for 30 years. She is focused on bringing diverse literature to young readers and creating stories in which all children can see themselves and feel valued and validated. She loves dancing and music, so if a jam took place on her street in Stamford, Connecticut, Bolling and her husband (who plays the djembe) would definitely join in.
Sabrena Khadija is a Sierra Leonean American illustrator who is inspired by bold geometry, nature, and the feminine spirit. She takes pride in creating works that help others feel seen and inspired not only to see beauty in themselves, but to recognize and acknowledge that of others. She is the illustrator of Ride, Roll, Run and We Have a Dream: Meet 30 Young Indigenous People and People of Color Protecting the Planet. Khadija lives in Silver Spring, Maryland.
