    I'm reading picture books in preparation for a discussion in Grace Lutheran Adult Forum tomorrow on the creation as portrayed in children's literature. So many cool books and this is one of them. Get to read the book while you listen to Dylan sing the song! ...

    Bob Dylan's lyrics, about how man named all the animals, are accompanied by Jim Arnosky's delightful illustrations of animals, animals, and more animals, all of which are listed at the back of the book, with a challenge to the reader to find them all. Non-Christian readers may not unde...

    Dylan gets credit for writing this, but really it's just the lyrics to a song he wrote in 1979 that have been realized in drawings by Jim Arnosky. Arnosky's imagined animals are much wilder than the simple cow, bull, sheep, pig, snake, and bear that I imagined. Also, Arnosky includes a...

    It's probably something like a sin for me to say I don't really care for the words too much (I mean, I love Dylan but I just don't get this) but the illustrations are absolutely beautiful. I could stare at this all day. Gorgeous. ...

    Now what did you think I would think? I loved it! Beautifully illustrated with over 170 animals to identify. It comes with a cd so you can sing along with ubiquitous Bob. Beautiful book and I like this cover so much more than the other one I have seen. ...

    Now what did you really think I would think? I loved it! I even sang along with it. Beautifully illustrated book by by Jim Arnosky and written by the ubiquitous Bob himself! The book also included a cd (so you can sing along too). The book has over 170 animals that you can identify. Be...

    I have to say I loved this song before it became a picture book. It is a fun song to sit around and sing with friends. The song was originally recorded on Bob Dylan's "Slow-Train Coming" album, and is included as a single on the disc that comes with the book. Colorful illustrations acc...

    The art was really good. But the words and the images didn't match. A mountain goat isn't exactly a male sheep. Although they look so much alike I might be the one mixing up the image and the name. ...

    Fun, goofy interpretation of one of Dylan's more humorous songs. Kids will no doubt be making animal sounds and interpretations when listening to this one. I didn't especially appreciate that the the passage about naming the bull ended with a bull facing down a matador in front of ...

    This book is beautifully illustrated, but the story/song is also fantastic. It's the Bob Dylan song (that many are familiar with!) and it comes with the CD with the song on it. It's actually a children's CD that I don't go crazy listening to after the 500th time! And trust me, we have ...

    J CD Book Short Dylan Kay gives it 5 stars The illustrations are fabulous!!!! Jim Arnosky asked Bob Dylan if he could create pictures for his song "Man Gave Names to All the Animals" and he gladly agreed. We are all the better for it. Enjoy. ...

    Read this book a few years back and I used it for a project in musical education. It's funny how you change and appreciate things looking back. I think my review was different because my children were not at an age to appreciate this book. This book is great and brings the Bob Dylan so...

    This book jumped out at me from the shelves and when I saw it was from singer/songwriter Bob Dylan it immediately went to the top of our stack. The animal illustrations are amazing! I loved pointing out each animal to my little one. The best part of this book was the accompanying C...

    Great illustrations, fun rhymes, clever ending, Bob Dylan music. Kate and I enjoyed saying "Uh, oh!" at the end. We played the track over and over again, and the girls had fun dancing to it. Bought the book in Fall 2018. ...

    Jim Arnosky is a master illustrator of children's books, and he has done a commendable job with these lyrics to Bob Dylan's "Man Gave Names to All the Animals." While Dylan sticks to common animals that are named by Adam (yes, Adam in the Bible means "Man"), Arnosky presents us with a ...

    I have a few reasons for beginning to review the children's books that I read to my son. I'll eventually forget how most of them are. Also, children's books are extremely expensive, and I'm sure people come to Goodreads all the time to get recommendations before they waste money. Final...

    Of the five Dylan songs that transformed into illustrated storybooks for children, this is the only one with two very different editions. Three and a half stars. This one, from 2010, is far superior to the earlier one, of 1999. If you want to share Dylan music with the young kids i...

    Man Gave Names to All the Animals is one of the coolest books I have ever had the chance to read. Bob Dylan's poetic musical stylings supply the words for the book, but it is definitely all brought together through the eyes of the illustrator, Jim Arnosky. The book itself takes the lyr...

    I absolutely LOVE this book! I made my mommy read it to me like 6 times one day. The pictures are so crisp and beautiful that it's a feast for my little eyes. When I get old enough, I'll be able to sing and read the chorus along with my parents. The coolest thing is it's like a...

    This book has got the whole package! It has beautiful illustrations to accompany all of the lyrics. When I first read this book, I did not know the tune. But the book had a CD at the very end! It was very helpful. The lyrics are easy for children to understand and be entertained at the...

    This book had some excellent illistrations to describe the words. It was a simple book, but explained a little about animals and includes an animal search activity at the end. It would be perfect for children learning their animals and sounds. ...

    I had never heard this song before reading this book, but I instantly fell in love with the artwork that the illustrator used. I loved how all of the animals were Africanized, so that the cow was more of a Yak, etc. It really made the book feel cohesive as well as just being so beautif...

    1. None 2. B-2 3. Jim Arnosky paints vibrant, realistic animals in their habitats to illustrate Bob Dylan's song, Man Gave Names to All the Animals. The lyrics to each verse describe a legend of perhaps how a particular animal may have been named and rhyme in a way that by the end of...
