    1. This fine biography of social activist and musician Woody Guthrie introduces a man who was interested in speaking for those whose voices were often ignored or silenced Guthrie led a peripatetic life when growing up, and money was not abundant As he traveled the countryside searching for work himself, he also noticed and wrote folk songs about poverty and the bleak economic reality caused by the Great Depression Young readers may not know about any of this background, but they will likely be fami [...]


    2. My view on Social Studies I believe that social studies is the study of humans, their interactions with each other and the world around them As teachers, we must open the eyes of our students to the diverse cultures around us Every individual is unique and can offer something to the world Summary and integration of book This book reads like a children s biography on Woody yet with vivid and imaginative pictures I used this book for my student to better understand the hard life Woody went though [...]


    3. With the lyrics to This Land is Your Land running through the illustrations and a lengthy description of the many phases in Guthrie s life covered in the text, this book covered the life of the famous songwriter quite well The text focused primarily on his music career though, and the life events that effected it The endnotes, in addition to containing the full seven verses of This Land is Your Land, also carried a timeline of his life that revealed many details that were omitted from the text S [...]


    4. This is a simple, folksy biography of folk legend Woody Guthrie It tells about his early tragic family life and hardscrabble existence in Oklahoma during the Great Depression when he learned to play the guitar, his social activism and songwriting, and his settled later life as husband and father The author effectively weaves snippets of Guthrie s lyrics throughout the book, and the words of This Land is Your Land are painted across the tops of the pages The muted illustrations in shades of blue [...]


    5. This is another book that would be good for a biography unit The book tells all about the musician and explains what brought him to where he was It also discusses the messages and reasons behind his songs In the back of the book is a timeline of important events which can be used to help show students how to determine whether something is important or not.


    6. The illustrations are really the highlight of this book The text is a little overwhelming for a picture book about a folk singer, but she watercolor snapshots of Guthrie s life and time are wonderful.


    7. I think it s just amazing that this book exists and the art which is GORGEOUS couldn t be better suited to Woody Guthrie the man or the message he was trying to convey through his music My only complaint is that the text seemed to shy every so slightly away from his politics.


    8. Picked up this delightful book about folk musician Woody Guthrie after viewing an exhibition about him at the Tacoma Art Museum several years ago Came across it while cleaning out a book shelf and re read it it s short, sweet and colorful.





    9. Sadly some of this made me think of our current situation with employers feeling like they can take advantage of workers because there are so many in need of jobs.


    10. A biography of Woody for kids Well done All of the spirit and compassion comes through And even a little of the socialism Juvenile readers.
