I bought this book because mu daughter has just bought a piano and has 2 small children. It seemed like a good idea to involve the whole family and they love it.

There is a wide selection of songs including some that I remember from my childhood. It is good to be able to sing these with my children;it also gives the opportunity to discuss unfamiliar words/terms used in yesteryear. The music arrangements are easy to play and do not drown the songs.

Customer Rating Great book, lots of rhymes and songs, very easy arrangements. Arrived promptly and in good condition.

Customer Rating I am disappointed in the quality of the accompaniements to the songs. They are very basic but hard to read when singing subsequent verses. Only first verses are above the music.
