Pete Seeger's Storytelling Book
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2001 - Family & Relationships - 264 pages
Folk icon Pete Seeger carries on the storytelling tradition by
teaching parents old and new classics to pass on to their children.
For more than fifty years, Pete Seeger has been sharing his songs and stories with the world. Now in this wonderful collection of stories, ideas, and music, he shows how anyone-grandparents, parents, teachers-can start a
storytelling tradition of their own. In Pete Seeger's Storytelling Book, he and Paul Jacobs include Pete's own family stories, tales from America's past,
new versions of familiar legends, and stories based on Pete's favorite songs, such as "Abiyoyo." And, in keeping with the theme that a story never really ends-in fact it gets better each time it is told-the book sends the reader away with wonderful story openers to get started. With suggestions on how to personalize the stories, this is not only a valuable resource for any classroom or household but a precious, intimate gift from one of America's most beloved musicians.
