        Excellent for children who have no previous knowledge of music. Nice little songs which they can learn to play quite quickly, encouraging them to want to continue to learn. Lovely duets too which children love playing. Brings them on steadily at the right pace.
        I can find no bad points.

        I bought this book for a young friend who is just starting the piano because it was my first book 40 years ago. I was delighted and charmed that the music was still so suitable and tuneful, with different lessons that can be drawn out in each peice. The verse to sing is helpful for many children, and the duets at the end are great.

        I learned form this book in the '50s and my mother and grandmother before me. I am a piano teacher, and sometimes forget what a wonderful little collection of pieces it is: characterful, nostalgic, and appeals to today's child just as much as tunes with pieces about mobile phones and moon landing! Ideal for pre-Grade 1.

        I use all the latest publications but still return to this little book because the pieces are tuneful, short and with an attractive theme of a farm all the way through. I like the use of different hand positions for each hand and the gradual moving out of position. I find this book helps the less confident pupil achieve as the pieces are so short. Finally the duets are tuneful and fun.

        I have used this book as a second book for beginners for over 40 years. It is simplistic in its approach, seeking to hone the skills of the beginner. Walter Carrol was an expert in this field. The music contains expression marks, and the rhythms used are simple. However, the music is melodious and presents a challenge to the beginner. The skills developed are progressively more demanding. The duets at the end of the book are great fun, and yet present new skills for the young child. The verses are great fun to sing along to the music!
