The idea is lovely, but someone didn't proof-read the carols: they managed to torture We Wish You a Merry Christmas into 4/4 time. Unbelievable! Another reviewer has already pointed out the awkward page turns. In addition, some of the instructions for the activity pages are on the previous page so you have to constantly go back and forth between the two pages. I also question the logic behind the arrangement of the Russian Dance from The Nutcracker: the only reason I can see for having the student play the first 2-measure phrase an octave lower than the rest of the piece is so the left hand gets to play some of the melody - but at what cost? It distorts how children know this piece. Very disappointing.
(1) About half the pages are coloring or other activity pages, which might work for some students, but I prefer songs only. (2) Don't like the fact that We Three Kings does not include the refrain. (3) The book would be improved 100% if they just rearranged the pages. Many 2 page songs require a page turn (the 1st pg is on the right and you have to turn the page in order to finish the song). Too awkward for a child. Each song itself is good for a beginning level student, however.
Wonderful book for the beginning pianist. Even a basic student can feel special during this season by playing familiar tunes for family to enjoy and sing along.
