"On August 15, 1969, a music festival called 'Woodstock' transformed one small dairy farm in upstate New York into a gathering place for over 400,000 young music fans. Concert-goers, called 'hippies,' traveled from all over the country to see their favorite musicians perform. Famous artists like The Grateful Dead played day and night in a celebration of peace, love, and happiness. Although Woodstock lasted only three days, the spirit of the festival has defined a generation and become a symbol of the hippie life."-- from Amazon.com

This is an intriguing history book about social change and vocal artists of the 20th century.
(I noticed that the definition of communism is not correct.)

Well written, fact-based book for kids who are interested in history, social movements, and music. Could spark some interesting conversations between grandparents (or great-grandparents) and kids.
