        The cartoon theme is great for motivating beginners. The ontroduction of new material is well paced and there is plenty of extension work in the notes sections.
        I would have introduced quavers in this book, but most beginner books don't do this.

        Perfect for younger students who can progress quickly through the series. Each has a fantastically structured and easily manageable set of pieces with accompanying theory, and comes with a certificate at the end - most of my students still have them framed next to their Grade exams! The Special Edition includes warm up and sight reading pages. My favourite teaching resource.

        I use this book a lot, it is an excellent book for a young beginner. Very bright and colourful.

        I think it's been laid out wonderfully, really been thought about. It's not only understandable for children but I also like the fact that the tutor notes are with each piece of work, not just a huge amount at the front or back of the book. Def a great buy for the money. Thank you

        This book is great for young beginners. I teach Piano and have found that it is excellent at helping children not only to learn the notes etc, but also at how to sight-read efficiently. The tunes can occasionally be slightly boring and it may have been wise to include a few nursery rhymes or some sort of recognisable tune, but overall I would say it is the best book out there for teaching young children how to play the Piano (and believe me, I have used a lot of books!)

        I think this book is the best I have found for beginners to the piano. It is clear and bright and progresses at the right pace for children to learn.

        Very good. Bought for my daughter who is learning to play piano. She found it very easy to follow.
