Listen: How Pete Seeger got America Singing

Written by Leda Schubert, Illustrated by Raúl Colón

Being an elementary school librarian I absolutely love picture book biographies, and this is one that I will definitely be using for a read aloud with my classes. Whether or not you know who Pete Seeger is or what kinds of music he sang, you will get to listen to some of the lyrics as you read the book. The book does a good job covering the timeline of Seeger’s life. There are song titles below each significant event or topic which is such a good way for somebody to actually find the songs online to read all the lyrics if they are interested in doing so.
