Format: Sheet music
This book ags over 50 well-known kids songs, in traditional piano / vocal / guitar chords format, interspersed with some line drawing of cartoon charcters that kids will love to trace / xerox and colour! I admit to opening this book frequently to romp through the themes to "The Simpsons", "Flintstones", and the "Jetsons". I've also jammed on the Friends theme "I'll be there for you" with the band.

Younger children will love the tradtional nursery rhymes like "Ba Ba Blacksheep", and so on.

There are some odd inclusions, though. The Macarena was that annoying dance tune / fad that irritated most of us back in the day! There's no way I'd let my kids hear that song! There are some dated choices (Ballad of Gilligan's isle, anyone?), and some really obscure ones, too. In this category, "Can you read my mind?" from Superman is included. Yeah, how does that go again, because I've never heard anyone sing it, and I can't remember it from the movies, either!

I was irritated that the book does not stay open, which makes two-handed piano playing difficult. Plus, some of the music is very hard to read, with some looking like faded photocopies! The arrangements are meant for the accomplished pianist, and I wonder why the arrangers didn't think of including simplified arrangements of the tunes, for younger musicians to try and play. Plus, the arranger has clearly fell foul of the old shortcut of merely opening a guitar chord book at random and including whatever shape matched the piano chord - which results in some hard to play shapes that would fluster accomplished guitarists, let alone a beginner.

Just a short and sweet review of this wonderful sheet music compilation. The title is misleading as I found out when I first borrowed it from the library. The arrangements are well done and not for children but more intermediate level. I renewed it so many times and am thrilled to find it on at such a great price. Definitely worth the money and a little extra wait for it to arrive from the good USA. Go Steelers!

HASH(0x9c4a54bc) out of 5 stars Great variety - large crisp white pages - 2005 version 17 May 2015
By Kat - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Just received this music book yesterday and love it! There are a variety of songs, the print is big, the pages bright white. The print goes well into the center of the book, so you have to press down hard on the spine at each page to get it stay flat and therefore readable.

I own MANY music books I have collected over 40 odd years. I have found that bound books do not stay open the thicker they are. With books like this you really have to NOT try and keep them in AS NEW condition. You have to flatten them out and sometimes use a clamp. I wish all music books came in a spiral binding. Sheet music is fine, but books need a spiral binding.

That said, you can flatten this book out so it will stay open.

Also, the version I received is the 2005 version. It has about 60 less pages than the 1999 version. It is still available as USED on Amazon, and yet Amazon is combining the reviews for both versions. The newer version has less songs and has a blue cover. The older version has a beige cover. Same Characters on each. Later I will post a photo of the table of contents. I really hate it when a music book is available for sale but there is no listing of songs. That's why people are buying music books. There are a ton out there! Most people are looking for a combination of the level of playing and the songs.

NOTE: I tried to upload two photos showing the table of contents but for some reason Amazon is not allowing my photos to upload

HASH(0x9c4dff90) out of 5 stars great content - bad format 11 Aug. 2003
By raddad - Published on
Format: Sheet music
I have enjoyed learning to play many of the songs in this book. As a parent, it has allowed me to play songs my kids know. Unfortunantly the presentation is flawed. First, the book does not stay open! - making two-handed piano play difficult. Second, some of the music is hard to read. There are different reproductions - some are very are clear and some look like multiple generation photocopies.
HASH(0x9c4dfe94) out of 5 stars Great for keeping your child motivated stick with piano 23 July 2012

Format: Paperback
My mom had this book in her stash of piano music. I found it after my son had been playing for 3 years. He was teetering on "Bored" "Can I quit?" mostly because the level book songs were getting monotonous to him. His teacher added these songs in at his choosing and it got him through another year of piano:)

Then he was ready to move on to Easy Piano Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Harry Potter. But he still goes back to this book and enjoys picking it up and playing whatever cartoon is on his mind.

Being a child through the 70's, I found the selections in this book great. Wide variety, Pink Panther to Bugs and the Flintstones. And who can forget the Road Runner?

The Charlie Brown song is not the one we all remember and love, but one I don't remember at all. Otherwise, for my son (and I) every song in this book was a hit!

I bought this as a gift for my nephews (ages 9 and 13), who recently got a piano. This has some really fun and recognizable songs for them to practice. One of the boys reads music, but the other does not, so I like that this has the Big Note number system. I just wish that there were a finger diagram for the numbers included in the book--I had to print one that I found online to include with the songbook.

This is a great book to help children stay interested in piano lessons. Playing songs that they have heard keeps them engaged and also helps with learning timing in a fun way. This book has a good variety of tunes.
