PETER YARROW gained fame with his two singing partners Mary Travers and Paul Stookey, in the legendary trio, Peter, Paul and Mary. They were known for their ability to convey powerful, personal and political messages through a repertoire of songs that dominated the music charts in the '60s and '70s. Their first smash hit was "Lemon Tree," followed by "If I Had A Hammer," "Puff, The Magic Dragon" and many more. Through their recordings, television appearances, live concerts and now Children's Books, they have touched the hearts of tens of millions.
They won 5 Grammy Awards, produced 13 top 40 hits and received 8 gold and 5 platinum albums.
Their last children's book, "Puff The Magic Dragon," was a number-one best seller.
The latest book, "IT'S RAINING, IT'S POURING" explores one of the most beloved children's songs of all time. It features whimsical art by renowned illustrator, Christine Davenier and it includes a 3-song CD from the group.
