About this title

Synopsis:


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.

About the Author:

Pete Seeger has been a major influence in folk music for more than fifty years, having written such songs as "If I Had a Hammer" (with Lee Hays) and "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" Pete is also a storyteller; his children's book Abiyoyo is considered a classic. Abiyoyo Returns, which he wrote with Paul DuBois Jacobs, continues the beloved story. Pete lives with his wife, Toshi, near Beacon, New York.
