"This picture book in rhyme is delightful. The meter never loses its beat as it delivers the philosophy of the man who proved one person can make a difference. A sound end note affirms music and peace were here 'gigantic, messy and wonderful.'" Association of Jewish Libraries
"I was enthralled with this rendition of the Woodstock story and read it several times. It was probably no mean feat to recreate this story in rhyme, but it was very well done. The vibrant, colorful artwork was very appealing. Together they captured the spirit of the Woodstock Music & Art Fair (Woodstock)." Deb Fowler Round Table Reviews
"A giant celebration of the Woodstock nation. Yasgur and Lipner's book is a jubilant reminder of Max Yasgur's generosity." Naomi Howland, children's book author and illustrator
"A beautifully sanitized version of Woodstock for the newest generation. The words are rhythmic, rhyming, and peacefulif not entirely accurateand the fanciful illustrations by Underground Comix's Barbara 'Willy' Mendes tell as much of the history as the text." Sacramento Book Review
There are great illustrations that are so colorful and filled with joy.
The book is beautiful, delightful, well-written in a whimsical way - the rhyming is clever and loaded with double meanings sure to please the adults reading the book.
Most importantly, it is how those moments of inclusion bring forth the opportunity for growth and understanding.
A terrific & true story that inspires young & old alike to take chances & trust each other.
Barbara Mendes' art is so vibrant I bought an original piece of it!
