This chapter shows how the author grew to appreciate how Free to Be … You and Me and music had influenced not only her but so many other children of her generation. Free to Be was so special—it was like nothing else from its time. This collection of stories and music shaped the dreams and ambitions of millions of boys and girls. To this day, when a stranger or acquaintance somehow learns that the author was “The Dionne” mentioned in the dedication at the beginning of the book or on the back of that pink record, a wonderful story always follows about what the book meant to them and their siblings as children. A lot of times, people will just break into song.
