Synopsis by Alice Day
Learning to play a new instrument can be fun, but it might prove difficult for the people around the novice player! In the featured story in this episode of Reading Rainbow, Miles finds this out when he receives a new saxophone for a gift. Life becomes more exciting when he and his band are asked to perform at the Alligator Ball in Mama Don't Allow, written by Thacher Hurd. In the program, young viewers see a real alligator farm and meet a professional jazz saxophone. Other books reviewed by the youngsters are Alligator Shoes by Arthur Dorros, Miranda by Tricia Tusa, and Mouthsounds by Frederick R. Newman.
