Listen: How Pete Seeger Got America Singing
There was nobody like Pete Seeger.
Wherever he went, he got people singing.
With his head thrown back
and his Adam's apple bouncing,
picking his long-necked banjo
or strumming his twelve-string guitar,
Pete sang old songs,
new words to old songs,
and songs he made up.

About the Author
"Schubert and Colón ably demonstrate one of their book's final assertions: "there really was nobody like Pete Seeger."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"In this biographical tribute to Pete Seeger, Schubert and acclaimed illustrator Colón combine their talents to bring Seeger's legacy of music and social justice activism to contemporary young readers. Seeger's connection to the public is evident in repeated depictions of him among crowds of listeners, antiwar protesters, singing children, and the millions at the Lincoln Memorial rally."--Booklist
"An inspiring and heartfelt tribute to, as Schubert calls him, a "true American hero."--Horn Book
