Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
In a tribute to the singer, Christopher Canyon has somewhat modified a Jim Connor's song that John Denver made famous. He also has provided eye-popping illustrations—literally the eight kids, four hound dogs, and the piggy we stole from the shed plus grandma and grandpa are pictured with pop-eyes as they tumble around the big bed. Other illustrations also have fun with the country roads traditions. One spread shows two adults and a child posed as a parody of Grant Woods' American Gothic. A one page afterword tells the story of how John Denver saw this lively song as a fitting way to celebrate the power of music and family. The hardcover edition includes a CD of Denver singing the song. This is the fourth in the "John Denver and Kids" series issued in the "Sharing Nature with Children" series.

It was so cool to find this book. My nephew is 10 years old and had the opportunity to meet Christopher Canyon at his school. He was enamored with his books illustrations. Since I have been a John Denver fan all of my life, I too wanted to see this song in action. While visiting my grandsons in Memphis, I took them to Barnes and Noble to read and look at books. A favorite pass time for all of us. I found this book on the shelf and knelt to sing it to my grandsons. Even though I can't sing a lick, they loved it. After the first rendition from Grandmommy, they wanted me to sing it again. Two more children joined in the story. Grey and Noah read it two more times before we left the store. Noah is 4 years old and called me in Florida two days later to sing the entire song from the book. The only difference in his rendition and mine is, he says Grandma's Flower Bed. Great, great book for any age kid - even myself.
