Dj Kool Herc - The Father of Hip Hop

When the Beat Was Born: DJ Kool Herc and the Creation of Hip Hop by Laban Carrick Hall is one my MY FAVORITE Books! It tells the story of DJ Kool Herc and how he was one of the pioneers of hip hop. It traces his roots as a kid who loved spinning records to his rise to fame as one of him hop’s best dh’s. I’ve read this book to 3rd graders and 6th graders and they ALL have loved it. The illustrations are beautiful! Try playing some of his music after you read to get the kids moving and exploring the origins of hip hop and djing!
