Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Rife
Using the lyrics from John Denver's song "For Baby for Bobbie" as the text of the book, this picture book demonstrates the love that exists between parents and children. The words describe all that a parent will do to protect her child and describe the bond that will always keep them by their child's side. The accompanying illustrations show images of parents, mainly mothers, from different cultures and even different species. While one page shows an African mother holding her child's hand as they walk through the rain, another shows a litter of kittens cuddling up with their mother on a pillow. After the story is over, a spread shows a map of the world and the location of each of the animals portrayed throughout the book. As well, there is a small amount of information about that animal. Also provided is the sheet music for the song "For Baby" and biographical information about John Denver. This is one of the "John Denver & Kids" series of books that have been adapted from Denver's songs. Reviewer: Melissa Rife

    John Denver fans should love this!

    Do you know what the first song that the late John Denver ever recorded was? It was "For Baby (For Bobbie)." He originally wrote it as a love song for a girl named Bobbie, but Mary Travers, of "Peter Paul, and Mary," heard it differently and sang it as a love song for her daughter. This book is the fifth in Dawn Publications' series of John Denver and Kids picture books. Janeen Mason, an award-winning artist, member of the Florida Arts Council, and illustrator of numerous children's picture books, has adapted and illustrated Denver's song. Toddlers and their parents will see mothers and babies of both different peoples and various animals in a song and picture journey around the world, including elephants from Sri Lanka, kangaroos from Australia, puffins from Iceland, cats from the United States, monarch butterflies from Mexico, baboons from Africa, giant pandas from China, llamas from South America, and orangutans from Borneo. At the end there is a section with a map and information about the animals and where they live, followed by a copy of the song itself and a biography of Denver. The hardback edition comes with a CD of Denver performing the song. Previous titles include Sunshine on My Shoulders, Take Me Home Country Roads, Ancient Rhymes: A Dolphin Lullaby, and Grandma's Feather Bed. Many people have loved the songs of John Denver, and they will enjoy sharing them with their own children and grandchildren through these books.
