Today is the wonderful iconic folk singer Pete Seeger's 92nd birthday. I have always loved his music and storytelling.
Abiyoyo Book and CD by Pete Seeger and illustrated by Michael Hays is a classic and timeless tale. I remember hearing the story and song long before I read the book. Pete Seeger's voice is unmistakable and his storytelling skills are classic. This has always been of one my favorite stories. I love how the father and son work together to save the day. It was a fun story to read at story time because we could act it out. It is very easy to get children involved in the story. This is a great version because it has a cd so we can also listen to Mr Seeger's wonderful voice. I also love how the illustrations show a very multicultural environment which makes the story universal. A must have book ~
Happy Birthday Pete Seeger---a true American treasure!
