There is something inexplicable about The Beatles.
Why were they so interesting?
Even today's children are fascinated with them.
Can it be just the amazing music?
Or their unusual mop tops?
Or maybe the bigger-than-life Beatlemania phenomenon?
Admittedly, they had larger-than-life personalities that helped fuel interest.
Yet, at the same time always seemed like just four ordinary boys who were doing something they love.
My eight-year old twins demonstrated eager interest for The Beatles when I played them some of the classic Fab Four songs.
However, they got really interested when I showed them some videos of the whole Beatlemania phenomenon and a recording of the group's famous last concert on the roof of Apple headquarters at 3 Savile Row!
But, I knew that this fascination with The Beatles was just the top of the iceberg.
There was room for a read aloud rendezvous with the Fab Four in our house.
Why, you ask?
Well, make no mistake, the real story of the individual Beatles is even more interesting than the story of the group.
It is a story of hardship and success.
A story of loss and love.
A story of creativity and genius.
I simply had to find the best read aloud book about The Beatles to read to my children.
The Beatles were not simply a rock and roll group ... they were young people who overcome great challenges because they worked and believed in themselves.
I wanted that story about the individuals behind the group.
