An edition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Woodstock festival. With easy to read lively verse and illustrations reminiscent of the era's album covers, this tale commemorates the historic three-day music festival that became a symbol of the peace and love generation: Woodstock. Dairy farmer Max Yasgur made rock ’n’ roll history when he allowed a group of flower children to gather on his farm. Thousands from across the land flocked to listen to the rock groups of the day—the Grateful Dead, Richie Havens, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Santana. They pitched a tent village, danced joyfully in front of the giant stage blasting music celebrating the Aquarian age; and when it was over, they set out to rebuild the universe. An inspirational book that shares the value of kindness and open-ness. Children hear this book once, then they can repeat the sentences. At the end of the book there is a full page of historical notes and context for the Woodstock festival. The lyrics to the song Woodstock written by Joni Mitchell also appear at the end of the book.
