London: Veteran singer Bob Dylan`s famous track ‘Man Gave Names To All The Animals’ has been converted into a children’s book.

The 68-year-old star approved the song title for use in the project, which will feature drawings inspired by his lyrics and a CD featuring the track.

"From the first time I heard it, the lyrics created pictures in my mind of a land of primeval beauty,” a news daily quoted artist Jim Arnosky as saying.

"I thought this vision would make a dream of a book, and I asked for Bob Dylan`s permission to make this dream come true. Happily, he said yes," Arnosky added.

Meanwhile, Dylan is set to perform at the White House on February 10 as part of a civil rights celebration.

The ‘Hurricane’ hitmaker will join John Mellencamp, Smokey Robinson and Jennifer Hudson, at the ‘In Performance At The White House: A Celebration Of Music From The Civil Rights Movement show.’
