WIN!! A wonderful addition to your children’s bookcase with Tidy Books book review and competition. We have the story of The Beatles, written for children by Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom up for grabs this week.
With the revival of Britpop this summer, ‘The Beatles’ is a very timely tale of the original ‘Britpop’ band. This story of the Beatles, written for kids in cartoon style, brings the 1960’s to life in this lively history of the Fab Four. It also helpfully explains what vinyl is to children who’ve grown up with downloads!
Kids can relate to the story of four boys, all musicians who became friends and formed a band. Starting with school days, the book traces the steps of The Beatles as they discover music, get into trouble and come together as a band, the early days in Hamburg and as they become the world’s greatest band and evolve from ‘Love Me Do’ to ‘Sgt Pepper’
The cartoons bring The Beatles’ story to life, giving the young Beatles believably cheeky dialogue, and detail that will fascinate kids aged 8-12, as well as their parents and grandparents! Running alongside the band’s story, are the momentous events of the 1960s such as the anti-war movement and the growth of youth culture, giving kids an insight into what life was like for their grandparents.
If your kids haven’t discovered The Beatles music yet, this is warm and intelligent slice of history is a great place to start! And it gives you the chance to dust off that vinyl!
The Beatles by Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom is published by Frances Lincoln who kindly provided the review copies.
