The orphans of Charleston needed a hero and they found one in the good Reverend This documented story makes for excellent historical fiction describing a community leader, the birth of a musical phenomenon and opens the door for extended discussion and even research.There were many things I didn t know about when I picked this book up at my local public library I didn t know about the cultural groups of South Carolina I didn t know about the birth of Jazz and how many diverse experiences throug [...]

    6. I loved this book Anne Rockwell proves that picture books can be informative and instructive and a great way to teach history Did you ever wonder how the dance of the 1920 s, the Charleston, got its name Hey Charleston Traces the dance back to 1891 when Reverend Jenkins needed to raise funds for an orphanage he had started Using donated instruments, many of which were used by soldiers during the civil War, he organized the Orphanage Band.He found teachers to instruct the children and the band gr [...]


    7. Is there a particular genre of semi feel good, really beautifully, lushly illustrated, adaptations of important moments in African American history for kids picture books I suppose this is a member of said genre, and it is lovely The story of a South Carolinian Orphanage that ended up introducing America and beyond to the joys of big band jazz and sparked that wonderful dance, The Charleston The story is pretty simple, and Rockwell doesn t try to over inundate you with every detail, but expresse [...]


    8. This is a fascinating non fiction picture book about the beginning of Rag music It all started with a pastor of a small church in Charleston The tender hearted man began taking in orphans and caring for them He cared for them and taught them to care for themselves The group outgrew his home and they found an old warehouse that was turned into an orphanage The only problem was the prison next door The prisoners were loud and vulgar which was not the examples the pastor wanted for his charges His [...]


    9. This was a terrific, easy read I will definitely use it in my classroom when discussing the 1920 s It could also be a good lead in to Discussion of Germany s unrestricted submarine warfare at the start of World War I I have never heard this bit of history

    11. In Hey, Charleston , a guy named Daniel Joseph Jenkins opened up an orphanage in Charleston, South Carolina He soon had hundreds of kids that he needed to support This book is really inspiring to children because the people throughout the town donated old instruments for the children to learn how to play The children soon learned how to play a bunch of different instruments and eventually got to perform in many places, which helped them raise money to keep the orphanage going Young readers would [...]


    12. Hey, Charleston The True Story of the Jenkins Orphanage Band is a inspiring feel good story The story delivers a positive message about doing the best with the cards you are dealt The orphans in this story overcame so much through music.


    13. This was really a lot of fun to read The story of the birth of jazz in some ways, in others, the story of a visionary man who changed the lives of countless people and orphans particularly Truly a worthwhile read, particularly for musicians.


    14. As a South Carolina resident for over 20 years, I love to find books with ties to South Carolina especially books that I can use with my students to give them better understanding of the history and heritage of their state Hey Charleston The True Story of the Jenkins Orphanage Band meets those criteria perfectly This is the story of the Reverend Daniel Joseph Jenkins, an African American preacher in Charleston, SC in the late 1800s and early 1900s Jenkins discovered orphan children living in the [...]

    16. This book would be good for all ages This was a non fiction Picture book It is a good book for understanding what happened with slaves, orphans and the war I was a bit disappointed that this story didn t go in depth with what happened with the colored people but it showed the positive aspect to this time This non fiction book I would hope that kids could take that struggles people had and overcame with help of other people and how keeping a positive attitude goes along way Text to self It was a [...]


    17. In my book hahah, get it , the pictures get a 2.5 and the message of the story gets a 4 but the actual writing gets a 2, so all together, it s closer to a 2.5, but we re going to go with a 2 because that means it was an ok book The pictures just didn t appeal to me They were pretty enough, but I didn t really feel like they did a good job of capturing the energy of the story The story itself is so interesting A little boy who was a slave grew up to be a preacher He felt bad for orphans, so he ga [...]


    18. Rationale I chose this text because it is about Reverend Daniel Joseph Jenkins who took some homeless boys into his church Word got around and other boys soon joined them Jenkins loved music and asked neighbors to donate any old instruments they had lying around Eventually, he had enough to start a band The band then traveled around playing concerts for money The orphanage was a place for the boys to learn trade and to better themselves for their future as adults.Reflection Text to text This boo [...]


    19. I had never heard the story of the Jenkins Orphanage Band described in this picture book, but I am delighted to add it to my civil rights and music text sets When Reverend Daniel Joseph Jenkins offered a helping hand to several orphans in Charleston, he eventually decided to from a marching band using donated musical instruments from the townspeople The music they played had a distinctive sound to it that had its origins in the continent of Africa, and listeners responded to it It eventually eve [...]


    20. Reverend Jenkins always turn the bad into good He started to help out orphans and to make money taught them how to play music The band was even able to play in the inaugural parade for President Roosevelt This is a wonderful story about the Jenkins Orphan Band The text is easy to read, I would recommend for the 3rd or 4th grade I would use this book as a read aloud for 1st or 2nd grade and have the class identify the moral of the story I enjoyed that not only is this book a true story, there is [...]


    21. I really loved reading this book I love reading books based on true stories One thing that really stood out when reading the book were the illustrations They were so good They were like pastel drawings that went along with the story I think that little kids reading this book would enjoy it, because it will make them think about how well their life is compared to other kids out there in the world Another thing I really liked about the book was that the pastor always made every thing seem better t [...]


    22. This book is a wonderful introduction to the blending of music from African and Gullah people who lived on the islands around Charleston This music is called Rag and the dance is called Charleston This book mentions many memorable jazz artists like Car Anderson, Jabbo Smith who were both trumpeters with Duke Ellington and Freddie Green, a guitarist for Count Basie s Orchestra Each of these artist received training at the orphanage spoken in the story, the Jenkins orphanage run by rev Daniel Jose [...]


    23. This is a fascinating non fiction account of a rag tag group of orphans from Charleston who changed the world and their lives with music at the beginning of the 1900s The pictures are full of character, and the story has an uplifting message despite the turmoil that was happening in the world during that time Great for older children with longer attention spans.


    24. Interesting story about a pastor in 1891 Charleston, SC, who took in orphaned children and provided them with music lessons To make ends meet, he formed a children s band and they performed all across the country and even in England, and their music and dancing inspired the dance we know as the Charleston Readers will be inspired by the pastor s selflessness and resourcefulness.


    25. Rockwell does a wonderful job of telling the story of the Jenkins Orphanage Band I loved reading the story of a minister who saw a need and, through resourcefulness and determination, changed the lives of the orphans This is an inspiring read


    26. Where was this book when we were doing Gatsby for WestportREADS The only thing that could make this better would be if there was a CD of music included Simply fascinating story of the origin of ragtime music and the Charleston, and Anne Rockwell slips in many acts of kindness as well.


    27. An amazing and true story about the Jenkins Orphanage Band and how they improved the lives for many Read the footnote at the end and hear about how this band paved they way for some truly amazing musicians.


    28. What a great book This book brought a great message of turning bad into good, how no good deed should go unthanked The true story of the Jenkins Orphanage Band was truly a heart touching story So awesome that one man went and saved all those children and showed them a good way of life.


    29. A wonderful story about the start of the Charleston and also how one man could change every life he touches I also love how the story was told reminds me of Pinkney informational nonfiction pictures books.
