John Lennon Remembered in Children’s Picture Book


NEW YORK.- On what would have been his 64th birthday, John Lennon is being remembered through his music and art, and those too young to remember his legacy will be able to share and understand his message in a new picture book, John’s Secret Dreams: The Life of John Lennon by Doreen Rappaport, illustrated by Bryan Collier. (Hyperion Books for Children, all ages, $16.99)

From Thursday to Sunday, a collection of his artwork entitled "When I’m Sixty-Four" will be on display at 102 Wooster Street (between Prince and Spring Streets) in SoHo. Bridging the gap between generations and adding to family discussions and collections, the brilliantly illustrated picture book by an award-winning author and illustrator team puts John Lennon’s message of peace and personal search for life’s deeper meaning into a different perspective through his own words, and helps the younger set to experience the mark he made on society.

About the Book: In John’s Secret Dreams: The Life of John Lennon, the musical icon’s life experiences and important events in his life are presented through a combination of rhythmic prose, and original song lyrics, the very songs through which John Lennon expressed himself. Cut-paper collage and watercolor art captures the energy and the essence of a man whose vision and creative genius is legendary. A timeline of John’s life as well as a selected discography makes this picture book a beautiful piece of memorabilia for Beatles fans and a valuable resource for children learning about him for the first time.

Dorreen Rappaport and Bryan Collier are the creators of the critically acclaimed Martin’s Big Words, which received a Caldecott Honor, a Coretta Scott King Honor and Freedom River, winner of the Coretta Scott King Award for Illustration and an ALA Notable Book. Doreen Rappaport lives and writes in upstate New York. Bryan Collier divides his time between New York and Pennsylvania.
