  • Abiyoyo

    Abiyoyo
    No one wants to hear the little boy play his ukelele anymore...Clink, clunk, clonk. And no one wants to watch his father make things disappear...Zoop! Zoop! Until the day the fearsome giant Abiyoyo suddenly appears in town, and all the townspeople run for their lives and the lives of their children! Nothing can stop the terrible giant Abiyoyo, nothing, that is, except the enchanting sound of the ukelele and the mysterious power of the magic wand.

    Abiyoyo Returns

    Abiyoyo Returns
    After Abiyoyo the giant left, the small town he had bothered grew by leaps and bounds. The boy who helped his father make Abiyoyo disappear grew older and became a father, too. The people were filled with new life and spirit. But now there are new dangers: droughts and floods. The town needs a dam before it gets washed away. And sitting right where the dam would be is a boulder too big for anyone to move. Anyone, that is, except Abiyoyo. Father still has his courage. Grandfather still has his magic wand. And his granddaughter knows he can bring Abiyoyo back, then make him disappear. But Abiyoyo is dangerous. People think the giant will eat them. Will lots of good food and beautiful songs keep Abiyoyo happy long enough to move the boulder and once again leave the town in peace?

    Pete Seeger's Storytelling Book

    Pete Seeger's Storytelling Book
    Folk icon Pete Seeger carries on the storytelling tradition by teaching parents old and new classics to pass on to their children. For more than fifty years, Pete Seeger has been sharing his songs and stories with the world. Now in this wonderful collection of stories, ideas, and music, he shows how anyone-grandparents, parents, teachers-can start a storytelling tradition of their own. In Pete Seeger's Storytelling Book, he and Paul Jacobs include Pete's own family stories, tales from America's past, new versions of familiar legends, and stories based on Pete's favorite songs, such as "Abiyoyo." And, in keeping with the theme that a story never really ends-in fact it gets better each time it is told-the book sends the reader away with wonderful story openers to get started. With suggestions on how to personalize the stories, this is not only a valuable resource for any classroom or household but a precious, intimate gift from one of America's most beloved musicians.
