New in the Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the incredible life of Bob Dylan. As anyone who reads my reviews knows, I love this series and gobble up each new book as they are published. Bob Dylan was born Robert Zimmerman. As a child, he loved music above all else. He was not always appreciated for his voice as a child. As he got older he began to compose his own songs under his new name, Bob Dylan. His songs were about real things, events, civil rights and war. He was well received with his new folk music. Many other famous artists recorded his music and it got the audience it deserved. Bob did not mind others singing and recording his songs. His writing was so poetic that he was the first musician ever to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. I love the timelines that appear at the end of each of these books. There are also other resources that can be searched out for further study. This book could be used to teach young children how to write a biography, show that it is important to have a dream and strive to achieve it as well as to introduce one of the greatest authors of our time to a new generation. A good book for a school, class, or public library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book to read via netgalley. The rating, opinions and ideas stated are my own.

'Bob Dylan' by Ma Isabel Sanchez Vegara with illustrations by Conrad Roset is the story of singer/songwriter and music legend Bob Dylan.

Young Robert Zimmerman grew up in Hibbing, Minnesota. He liked the music he heard on the radio and taught himself to play guitar. He experimented with different styles of music and instruments. He became a brilliant songwriter.

I love this series, but it especially shines when the illustrations seem to rise above, and they do here. Conrad Roset's illustrations are really good and easily in my top 5 for this series.

I received a review copy of this ebook from Quarto Publishing Group - Frances Lincoln Childrens, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.

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.
