In the book “For Baby (For Bobbie),” Janeen Mason takes the lyrics from a popular John Denver song and creates fitting illustrations for a children’s book.
Cayden: “I liked the pictures in the book. There were people and things from all over the world in it. My favorite part was the page with the monarch butterflies because we just had a caterpillar in our house that turned into a butterfly and he looked like the ones in the book! I liked the part at the end where it tells about the different animals and where they live.”
Janeen Mason’s colorful illustrations, in combination with John Denver’s lyrics, make “For Baby (For Bobbie)” a beautiful book that is perfect to read to a child that you love. We also enjoyed the educational section at the end of the book about the different animals. The additional information about the John Denver song was interesting as well. I did not know that it was one of the first songs that he ever wrote.
