Editorial Reviews

"May your hands always be busy, / May your feet always be swift, / May you have a strong foundation / When the winds of changes shift. / May your heart always be joyful, / May your song always be sung, / May you stay forever young…" Bob Dylan's anthem "Forever Young" remains as fresh as it was when it was first sung in 1974. This graceful, unpretentious Paul Young picture book plays on the resonance of lyrics that can touch any generation, from babies to baby boomers.

Meet the Author

Bob Dylan is one of the most lauded and greatest loved songwriters and performers of all time. His particular brand of music first caught the public's attention in the 1960s, when he became something of a chronicler of the American conscience and cultural unrest. His remarkable career in music and literature continues to this day.

Paul Rogers is the illustrator of Wynton Marsalis's book Jazz ABZ. In addition to illustrating children's books, he has created images for the New York Times, Pixar Animation Studios, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and the NFL's Super Bowl. He lives with his wife, Jill, and his two children, Alex and Nate, in Pasadena, California.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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...

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!

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.

I have a 6 month old son and I sing him this song all the time, so when my cousin got us this book I was so excited. He loves all the bright colors and I love how all the pictures tell a little stroy about Bob Dylan. This will definatly be a book that we read together for years!!
