Summary: This book talks about Bob Dylan's early life, including that this is where is penchant for lying began, and how he got into music. It then follows him through high school and college where he played folk music and became known for his protest songs. It goes on to describe his various relationships, his move to rock and roll, his faith, and his children. This book was extra interesting because it had small sections describing the Civil Right's movement, women's lib, Bob Dylan's aliases and information about famous musicians that had an influence on Dylan's style.

Personal Reaction: I have loved Bob Dylan since I was a kid and this book didn't disappoint. I love that it compiles some issues that may be difficult to discuss with children and puts it in a way that makes it easy for kid's to understand. It was interesting to read about Bob Dylan's life in a way that is written for children.

Classroom Extensions: 1. This would be an awesome book to incorporate into a music class when discussing influential musicians.

2. This book could also be used during career week. The book describes a passionate young Bob Dylan following his dreams and I think that sends a good message. ( )
