Man Gave Names To All The Animals
Bob Dylan and Jim Arnosky

This picture book by Jim Arnosky beautifully illustrates Bob Dylan’s song “Man Gave Names To All Animals” (1979) and makes the reader aware of the diversity of animals living on our planet. Its vivid images invite us to learn the names of about 100 animals – from B for ‘baby crane’ to Z for ‘zebra’.

The picture book includes a CD with an original recording of Bob Dylan’s song – it is suitable for an interdisciplinary teaching project with Arts and Music.
