TOP 500 REVIEWERon 22 September 2009
This is a very nice little book of 16 well known carols - nicely illustrated with clear melody lines and lyrics. (Use the 'search inside' function to see a sample).

HOWEVER, Stephen Cartwright produced another book for Usborne in conjunction with Heather Amery. Confusingly, it has almost the same title (THE USBORNE BOOK CHRISTMAS CAROLS) and in my opinion that is a MUCH better buy. For any young child or, indeed, anyone who wants a book of 29 favourite carols for which you have full lyrics, music (melody line and separate chord accompaniment) as well as guitar chords (showing chord names and shapes)that HAS to be a book worth getting. In the 32 page version you only get chord names and not shapes.

It's all a matter of what you want or need, but in my view there is really only one choice.

This is a lovely book, packed with traditional Christmas Carols, such as, "Away in a Manger," "Good King Wenceslas,"and "The Holly and the Ivy." The music is clearly laid out and my daughter is on Grade One and could manage to play all the tunes with a little help. She enjoyed playing and singing these and the illustrations are bright and cheerful. Osborne Books do a good range of themed activity and music books ranged around certain times of the year - the inside cover lists, "Christmas Cooking" and "Christmas Activities," as other titles you may be interested in.

Got this book from library. Wanted our own copy, found it here. Has music for flute/recorder, guitar and piano. About grade 1. All the old traditional songs. Arrived very promptly.

I agree with the previous reviewer that the other Usbourne carol book is better value - more songs and ring bound too which is nice, but my little girl much prefers this one. She likes the colour pictures rather than the silhouettes in the other book I think. Nice choice of carols and the arrangements are easy
