Publisher Comments:

To ev'rything

there is a season

and a time

for ev'ry purpose

under heaven.

For thousands of years Ecclesiastes' beautiful words have inspired and given solace to people all over the world.

Pete Seeger was so moved by these words that he set the psalm to music and added a refrain and a line of his own. "Turn! Turn! Turn!" was recorded in 1962 by the Byrds. You can still hear the song on the radio today — more than forty years later.

Now Wendy Anderson Halperin lends her talent and artistic vision to the famous song, creating a book like no other. Wendy's art invites you to turn, turn, turn the pages and investigate all the different ways people live and laugh, love and mourn, and the ways in which war and peace affect humanity.

It's your turn now, to read the words of Ecclesiastes, listen to Pete Seeger's music, gaze at Wendy Anderson Halperin's illustrations, and contemplate what being human is all about.

Synopsis:

Pete Seeger's beloved song brought to new life with spectacular illustrations. Adapted from the book of Ecclesiastes, Pete Seeger's classic song reassures us that life is constantly in motion and that the hard times are balanced by the good. Wendy Anderson Halperin has illustrated these famous lyrics to create a one-of-a-kind picture book. Each spread is filled with many tiny scenes that invite the reader to ponder the many different ways we live, experience, and act in the world. Timeless, timely, and inspiring, the book includes sheet music and a special afterword by Pete Seeger.
