        very suitable for beginners with lots of quirky questions and fun characters
        Only downside is that it closely follows the adventure books so maybe not be as useful for everyone.

        The book introduces sight-reading in a clear and logical progression. The focus is initially on pattern recognition and trains young pianists to look beyond 'the next note'.
        I particularly like that the exercises are linked to the pieces in the lesson book, so double up as a warm-up.
        There is nothing that I don't like about this book.

        Excellent!The book is organised into sets of 5 exercises, for 5 days of practice. Each set provides variations on a piece from Piano Adventures Level 1 Lesson Book (2nd edition). Play one exercise per day, completing one set per week. My students love the accompanying cartoon characters who add fun and ask a musical question each day (such as name a few of the notes or draw in the bar lines). The books encourage daily practice & are very motivating. The children gain a sense of accomplishment as they progress rapidly through the book. They can clearly see their progress because their fluency builds rapidly and there is also a progress chart (on the contents page). The children I teach love these books!
        A very minor point compared to the overall excellent strengths, however: There are occasional American terms (eg 'Measures' for 'Bars') although these are very quickly explained.
