Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan!
For today's post, since this is Bob Dylan's birthday, I figured I'd make quote art inspired by his 1974 song, "Forever Young" which I love. The lyrics are so sweet and beautiful. He is truly saying what every parent wants their child to hear. The lyrics are listed below the art. I personally would like to dedicate this song to my son, Maddox.
I also highly recommend picking up (or checking out at your local library) Forever Young by Bob Dylan, the children's book based on this 1974 classic and inspired by the birth of his son, Jakob (who later became the frontman of the band The Wallflowers, releasing a single in 1997 that you may recall titiled "One Headlight").
I consider Forever Young to be one of the most uplifting books to keep in your child's collection as I find it to be quite uplifting holding the same caliber as Dr. Seuss, The Berenstains and Eric Carle. Not to mention, the illustrations by Paul Rogers are adorably simple and refreshing. Below is the visual reading through his singing, page by page. Enjoy.
