    "Engaging Bio for Kids"
    What made the experience of listening to Who Were the Beatles? the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed hearing the stories of their childhoods and this fast-paced overview of their lives. It was also refreshing to hear about some of their challenges growing up, and that they weren't clearly destined for greatness to those who knew them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was an entertaining story of some of my favorite musicians and got my kids more excited in their music.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Pariseau – was your favorite?

    Not really an applicable question to nonfiction, but I will say that the narrator was engaging and lively, though not particularly memorable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is a short book and one you could easily get through in one sitting. I think it took us two sittings to get through due to schedule, but there was certainly no desire to pause it. Thoroughly enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this whole series, especially for late elementary kids. The sort of thing they listen to for fun but also learn something.
