Synopsis

Little Man is a drummer--that's his thing. He's bursting with rhythm and wants to improve his groove.

With support from his father, Little Man practices every day. Soon he has enough confidence to play the drums at the local block party and is pleasantly surprised when his neighbors take up a collection for him. Now Little Man has money to buy a new bike to transport him to drum lessons!

Inspired by Dionne Warwick's and co-author David Freeman Wooley's shared passion for music and performing, LITTLE MAN also includes an exclusive audio CD narration and demonstration of the parts of a drum set.
