    Bob Dylan brings it all back home for parents and children with this engaging book based on one of his classic songs.

    The song "Forever Young" has struck a chord in the hearts of parents, grandparents and other adult from the moment it was first written. For those of us who saw Dylan as the mouthpiece to the anti-war movement social turmoil of the 60's and 70's, this tender tribute to his children came as a sweet surprise, and captured our own yearning to hold onto our youth.
    Now, thirty five years after it first appeared on record, Dylan has teamed up with illustrator Paul Rogers to create an entertaining and meaningful book that can be enjoyed by all ages.
    Dylan fans will spend hours pouring over the illustrations looking for hidden clues from songs, video's and past events in the author's life. (Rodgers provides a list of his inspirations at the end). Children and non fans will enjoy the simple drawings and the compelling words. The truly brave may even try to sing along.
    This book is the perfect gift for everyone - it is truly timeless. And be sure to buy one for your own collection.

    Beautiful song makes a beautiful book!

    Forever Young is my favorite Bob Dylan song. (Actually, Tim O'brien's recorded version of the song is my favorite.) The lyrics are beautiful words to live by and I love the illustrations in this book. Each illustration is historically significant (descriptions provided for each at the end of the book). I read this often to my 3-year-old son, but also show it off to my adult friends and family who are music fans.

    just lovely

    i highly recommend this book. but i would be very careful about purchasing it if B&N says it is a bargain book. i bought mine that way and they warn that there might be some minor flaws. when my book arrived half the book was bound upside down!! it wan unreadable, even by turning the book around, as they were not only upside down but back to front. and when i called B&N to ask them to resend a properly bound book they simply kept on insisting that i was forewarned and that i could get a book with minor flaws. minor flaws indeed!

    Check the Illustrations!

    The details hidden in the illustrations make this a picture book for grownups - or at least for teens! It definitely has a good message for younger children as well, but older folks will enjoy the music history in the illustrations.

    Forever Young...

    I discovered "Forever Young" in the children's section while browsing...Picture books with extraordinary illustrations make fantastic gifts for certain friends...Always fond of singer songwriter Bob Dylan, I opened this book to find a gold mine...Forever Young (a state that we would all like to be in) makes a terrific book for birthday gifts especially those aging up to 40- 50- 60-etc and especially those who grew up in the Woodstock generation...

    Forever Young

    This book is based (literally)on Bob Dylan's beautiful, poetic and loving wish for his own children that they always remain "forever young." It is a song I have shared with my own children since birth and when this book came out (although it's categorized as a "childrens'" book) I bought it for my son as a gift for graduating high school. It is a sentimental bond that he and I share and he was genuinely touched to receive it. The illustrations are neat and carry all sorts of references to key people and places that were influential in Dylan's life. It is a wonderful keepsake for any Dylan fan or for any parent who embraces the thoughts expressed in the song. I love it!

    Love it!

    I ordered this book for my sister's graduation. I've always loved the lyrics to this song and found this book to be a good "go forth and conquer" read. I know that for children or adults this sends a great message. The illustrations are also very nice.
