Leda Schubert, Listen

There was nobody like Pete Seeger.
Wherever he went, he got people singing. 
With his head thrown back
and his Adam's apple bouncing, 
picking his long-necked banjo
or strumming his twelve-string guitar, 
Pete sang old songs, 
new songs, 
new words to old songs, 
and songs he made up.

In this gorgeously written and illustrated tribute to legendary musician and activist Pete Seeger, author Leda Schubert highlights major musical events in Mr. Seeger's life as well important moments of his fight against social injustice. From singing sold-out concerts to courageously standing against the McCarthy-era finger-pointing, Pete Seeger's life is celebrated in this bold book for young readers with gorgeous illustrations by Raul Colon.
