"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

"One farmer did not think the same
And Max Yasgur was his name.
He raised cows, sold milk and cheese.
He liked kids with big ideas like these."
The festival was on because "Max said Yes!" They came from all over. In cars and on foot they came onto the land. The tents went up all around the stage and the festival was on. The bands played and the hippies danced to their music. It was a time to make peace, not war and from August 15 to 17, 1969 "almost half-a-million people" made a little love, did a little dance and all got along!
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) perfectly! In the back of the book there is more information on the festival and Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock" lyrics. This is a wonderful nostalgic look at a celebration of peace and love in celebration of its 40-year anniversary. Peace!
The only thing I had to change was the mom and dad to grandma and grandpa. Are we really there!
Even the tickets on the back page that we cluthed so tight all the way from NH to NY not to lose, then didn't even need them as the fences came down for all to get in. It was the concert of a lifetime a time of peace and love... candi
