About the Author

John Denver's love for nature, his hope and belief in the future, and his brilliance of expression inspired so many people toward "higher ground." Although he died in 1997, we are pleased to bring his timeless lyrics to the next generation. As he wrote in one of his songs:

Celebrate living,
The laughter that sings in heart of a child,
The freedom that flies at the call of the wild,
Celebrate living.

Dawn Publications' John Denver & Kids picture book series, illustrated by award-winning illustrator Christopher Canyon, includes: Sunshine On My Shoulders, Ancient Rhymes: A Dolphin Lullaby and Take Me Home, Country Roads.

Christopher Canyon shares some thoughts on the project: "To have this opportunity to share John Denver's music and message with the children of today is truly a dream. John gave the world so many thoughtful songs about relationships; our global need to live together in peace and the importance of caring for our environment. These messages, as relevant today as ever, and John's music and voice continue to touch our lives and lift our spirits."

Three of Christopher's books, Sunshine On My Shoulders, The Tree in the Ancient Forest and Stickeen, have won the American Bookseller Association's Benjamin Franklin Award for best children's picture book of the year. Chistopher is also the illustrator of Wonderful Nature, Wonderful You and the beautiful Earth trilogy, Earth and You - A Closer View: Nature's Features, Earth and Us - Continuous: Nature's Past & Future, and Earth and Me - Our Family Tree: Nature's Creatures. Christopher lives with his wife and cat in central Ohio.
