In 1957 in Liverpool, England, a young lad named John Lennon and his band played music at a local church fair. In the audience was Paul McCartney, who liked what he heard and soon joined the group. Paul's friend George Harrison kept showing up at rehearsals until the older boys finally let him in. Eventually they found the perfect drummer, Ringo Starr, and the perfect name: The Beatles.

Told through a lyrical text and stunning paintings, this book spotlights four ordinary boys growing up amid the rubble of postwar England who found music to be a powerful, even life-saving, force.

My four-year-old son could not get enough of this book, and the pictures and story it contains. I guess because the book had for the previous three years been supplemented with music I played, and with my editorial comments, he was certainly primed to eat it up, but the story was riveting, and I learned a few things myself, despite a lifetime of loving the Beatles.
This is one we're going to have to own.
