Take Me Home, Country Roads, a book following the lyrics of John Denver's first hit song, is a great teaching tool for young readers about family and appreciation for the natural world around us.
This brilliant picture book adaptation of John Denver's first hit song is all about roots, family, and country. Set in Appalachia, a humorously diverse bunch of relatives and their in-laws go up, down and around the hills of West Virginia to converge by car, pickup, and motorcycle to a family reunion at Grandma and Grandpa's country home. True to Appalachian style, Canyon portrays it all as if on a quilt, complete with little stitches between the "fabric." The lyrics demand to be sung!
A book for:
fans of John Denver wanting to share his music with their kids!
anyone who wants to inspire children to appreciate the country!
Parents and children looking for feelings of security and comfort!
