When Simon and Schuster picture book Abiyoyo, a storysong by Pete Seeger illustrated by Michael Hays, was published, PBS TV show Reading Rainbow featured Pete live on the studio set with LeVar Burton and he retold his storysong especially for this episode.

Simon and Schuster publishes a hardcover edition of Abiyoyo (with Pete Seeger audio CD). The Simon and Schuster Aladdin imprint publishes a mass market softcover edition of Abiyoyo and a Books On The Go mini-edition.

Scholastic publishes a school edition of Abiyoyo (with audio cassette recording by James Earl Jones) and published a Big Book edition for teachers. Scholastic has sold a million+ copies of Abiyoyo. Foreign editions of Abiyoyo included Swedish and Japanese language editions. We now have a Spanish language edition from Teaching Strategies.

PBS TV program Between the Lions featured a digitally animated version of Michael’s Abiyoyo art.
