5.0 out of 5 stars Hoorah 11 Dec 2009
A great little book. My nine year old took to it with wonderful enthusiasm. She loves it; the reason being, Walking in the Air is obviously wonderful but the arrangement is gorgeous. I love it too. It's nice listening to her play it, which she does often.
My nine year old is in the middle of her grade 3 abrsm and this is easily within her skill level. I reckon this arrangement is around grade 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars ethereally beautiful music 29 Dec 1998
By ericberger@worldnet.att.net - Published on Amazon.com
If you play music for kids, they will love this story. My kids (10 and 12) perform for children using this book and it is always a hit. Great story, pictures, and especially the music.
5.0 out of 5 stars Magical for those who love the movie 26 July 2014

This is such a neat concept. If you have a child who loves this book/movie (full version is available on YouTube) and you took some piano when you were a child or your child is in piano, I highly recommend this! You read the story and look at the pictures and play a simplified version of the music from the movie. My son was delighted! Don't worry if you can't make it sound all smooth and pretty like the movie... I stopped lessons when I was about eleven and haven't really meaningfully touched the piano in the over twenty years since so my rendition is pretty awful... But we were all charmed by the experience. If you have a kid currently in piano lessons, I'd say this is something the typical ten or eleven year old could play with a little practice. Or you can just do one hand or just the easier pieces.
