Bob Dylan Children's Book

These children books from Bob Dylan were a pleasant surprise. What does someone like Bob Dylan has to say to children ?

Turns out, these children books were not intended as children books, they are songs by Bob Dylan turned into illustrated books. Even better.

Forever Young




Forever Young

Reading level: Ages 9-12
Published : September 23, 2008

Since it first appeared on the 1974 album Planet Waves, "Forever Young" has been one of Bob Dylan's most beloved songs. It is now presented in this book by award-winning illustrator Paul Rogers. This is the first of Dylan's books for children, a story about young boy receiving his first guitar and how he grows up playing it.

The back of the book tells a bit about Bob Dylan's life and the author goes thru each illustration and points out the meaning behind some of the details on each page. He also says that if we listen to Dylan's music, we will discover more information creatively tucked away into each page. This allows for discovery and learning (for a bit older child).


Man Gave Names To All The Animals





Man Gave Names to All the Animals
Reading level: Ages 4-8
published : September 7, 2010

Visual imagery from Bob Dylan's 1979 album, Slow Train Coming, This book comes with a CD.

Bob must appreciate the illustrations in this book. My nieces and nephews do. We get a kick out of listening to the song on the CD and reading the text along with it. The drawings are appealing and only a bit bizarre. Gives the kids an antidote to Berenstain Bears.

Grown ups would like this books, too.
