This inspiring picture book tells the story of the friendship that shaped music history, between four lads from Liverpool who shared a love of music and big ambitions.
This book tells the story of the friendship between Ringo, Paul, George and John, and how their unique talents came together to make something brilliant.
In 1957, a boy named Paul met a boy named John. John was funny and confident, while Paul was quiet and steady, but one thing they had in common was a love and talent for songwriting. When they were joined by George and Ringo, they formed the band whose name would soon be known across the world: The Beatles. Together, the Fab Four became the world's best-loved band, drawing huge crowds to packed-out stadiums. But even they got nervous sometimes, and in those times they knew they could rely on each other. Through the power of friendship, The Beatles made their biggest dreams come true and still bring joy to the lives of millions.
The Power of Friends celebrates friendships that changed the world. From musical greats to sports champions, scientists and explorers to artists and activists, these are the true stories of real friends who achieved amazing things. Whether best friends since school or thrown together by a chance encounter, they supported and inspired each other to make their shared dreams come true. This charming series shows 4-7-year-olds how togetherness, respect and the power of friendship can make the world a better place.
