Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3–5—This inspiring picture book biography about one of America's greatest folk heroes is sure to get a new generation of children singing. Filled with Colón's signature illustrations, the book introduces young readers to Pete Seeger—the musician, political activist, and environmentalist, while also filling them with hope. A champion of unions, farmers, civil rights, children, and clean rivers, "Pete didn't care about fame or money. He cared about justice, peace, equality, and people everywhere." While the narrative focuses on his adult life, a detailed time line of his entire 94 years is included. Original and traditional songs, such as "Down by the Riverside," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?," "Abiyoyo," "Michael Row the Boat Ashore," "This Little Light of Mine," and "If I Had a Hammer," are highlighted in blue throughout the text, just begging to be heard and sung. The word listen is also repeated several times in the book. The watercolor and colored pencil art captures the joy of the singer and his audiences, old and young, as well as his country life along the Hudson River and his work leading protests. Susanna Reich's Stand Up and Sing!: Pete Seeger, Folk Music, and the Path to Justice is a longer, more inclusive biography, better suited for reports, while Schubert's offering is ideal for shared reading. VERDICT Buy this book and sing your heart out!—Barbara Auerbach, New York City Public Schools

Review

"Schubert and Colón ably demonstrate one of their book's final assertions: "there really was nobody like Pete Seeger."―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"In this biographical tribute to Pete Seeger, Schubert and acclaimed illustrator Colón combine their talents to bring Seeger’s legacy of music and social justice activism to contemporary young readers. Seeger’s connection to the public is evident in repeated depictions of him among crowds of listeners, antiwar protesters, singing children, and the millions at the Lincoln Memorial rally."―Booklist

"An inspiring and heartfelt tribute to, as Schubert calls him, a “true American hero.”―Horn Book

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I write books for children and read books for all ages. Lots of books. Too many books. I live in North Central Vermont with my husband and two large dogs: Bunky (a challenge) and Pippa (a saint). I have an MFA in Writing for Children/Young Adults from VCFA and have taught in the very same program. I play guitar (fingerpicking country blues), sing badly, and attempt to paint with watercolor. I do not like to cook and have failed at growing things.

You can find out more about me and see assorted photographs on my website. www.ledaschubert.com

I also blog there on rare occasions. www.ledaschubert.com/blog.htm
