Recently published: Little People, Big Dreams/Bob Dylan by Maria Sanchez Vegara

Young readers and listeners will learn how Robert Zimmerman became the famous, somewhat reclusive, musician Bob Dylan in this entry in the Little People, Big Dreams series. Finding his voice and using it are what made this singer, songwriter and multiple instrument playing musician the person that he became. Attention is paid to the kind of music Dylan makes and the ways in which he is his idiosyncratic self. Nicely illustrated and with additional biographical information at the end of the book, this is another excellent entry in an excellent series.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.

Inspired by his rock idols, Robert taught himself the guitar, the harmonica, and a strange instrument called the autoharp, which he played to an audience that was easily pleased.

Robert soon started composing his own songs. He had a real talent for writing rhymes and making words fit to a beat. The songs were poetic yet powerful, and he wrote them under his new name: Bob Dylan.

Bob’s music spoke about things that mattered: civil rights, war, and religion. Without trying, he became the voice of a generation eager to change the world, putting down in words what millions of people felt.

He received all the awards an artist could dream of. And he was the first musician ever to be recognized with a Nobel Prize for Literature. But—in true Bob style he didn’t show up to the ceremony.
