Thorne GB I'm a good chap.
Overall a very good book.
I think the Christmas songs were out of place. Just a minor niggle but if I want carols I will buy a book of carols. Also some choices were very cliched and quite frankly not needed.

Belper GB Love singing, especially oldies.
Wipeable outer cover. Nice big clear print. Lovely song choice.
It's hard to keep open on the stand without weakening the spine. If only it was spiral bound it would be perfect.

Customer Rating Liked this one. Good folk tunes for kids. A selection from across the world. Almost all in English, those that aren't have an english translation. Easy to use on music stand. Folds open nicely.
