“John Denver’s Take Me Home, Country Roads” is an illustrated version of Denver’s popular song.

Max:

“I like this song! {sings}‘Country roads, take me home to the place, I belong. West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home…’ The pictures in the book were really cool. They look different than other books that we read. There are a lot of things in them too! My favorite picture was the one with the train.”

Parent’s comments:

I have decided there is nothing cuter than seeing my 4-year-old walk around the house randomly starting to sing “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” The song is definitely stuck in his head after reading this book. The illustrations in “John Denver’s Take Me Home, Country Roads” are absolutely wonderful and so much fun to look at. What a great way to introduce the music of John Denver to a child!
