Synopsis

Bob Marley by Sherry Beck Paprocki

One of the most popular musicians of the 20th century, Bob Marley lives on as an icon of reggae music. This informative biography provides an excellent introduction to the celebrated singer/songwriter, guitarist, and activist. Marley grew up in the Trenchtown slum of Kingston, Jamaica. By age 14, he left school to work as a welder's apprentice; by 18, he joined a singing group that became one of Jamaica's hottest musical acts. Readers will learn how Bob Marley and the Wailers made reggae music mainstream for audiences around the world. They'll also discover how Marley became an international symbol of peace, love, and struggle against oppression before his death at age 36.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
