If you have never heard of the King of Ragtime, and if you have preschoolers or early elementary school children around your house, then you should all read (or readaloud) Scott Joplin: King of Ragtime, by Mary Ann Hoffman (Gareth Stevens Publishing, 2010). The book is one of the Inspiring Lives children's series. Since we just bought a copy at the 2011 ILF Conference, it hasn't been cataloged yet, but search the Evergreen Indiana online catalog to see when it'll be available.
