Talkin' Guitar: A Story of Young Doc Watson - Robbin Gourley

The big bold colors and the silhouette-like figures of Robbin Gourley’s Talkin’ Guitar (Clarion, $16.99) illustrate the simple but powerful effect that Arthel “Doc” Watson’s music had on people. Gourley shows how the sounds of animals, the work on the farm, and the musical souls who filled Doc’s Appalachian upbringing were the foundations of his sound. In a two-page ink-black spread interrupted only by white, chalk-like words, Gourley reveals that for all the vivacious color in Doc’s life, it was perhaps his blindness that fitted him to the task of expressing the beauty of his world through music. Ages 5-8. Sharat Buddhavarapu
