My 9 year old, Nicholas, really enjoys reading. He recently found a book series at his school book fair that he fell in love with. It is called the Who Was Book Series, it is intended for children, and the book that caught his attention is Who Were The Beatles? by Geoff Edgers. There are over 120 books in this series, 6 of them being musicians.
He now walks around like a Beatles expert telling the family all these interesting facts about The Beatles or quizzing us to see if we know the answers; we hear a lot of “Did you know…” and “Guess what…” It is very cool to see him delving into the history of the band and not just the music.
We were driving through a town called East Liverpool the other day and he saw the road sign and said “Liverpool, that is where The Beatles are from, but in England not America.” We got a good laugh out of that. So without further ado, I thought it would be fun for him to come up with a quiz about The Beatles to test your knowledge, see how well you can do!
