Once Upon a Time in Chicago
(by Jonah Winter/illus. by Jeanette Winter, Hyperion $14.99 Score:) Benny Goodman's father was a poor Jewish immigrant with dreams for his children's future. He doesn't live to see those dreams come true, but through music, Goodman's legend lives on. This is not as compelling as WInter's book about Rivera, but it introduces young readers to a musical giant. 7 and up.
