This music book is a gift for my granddaughter for Christmas, so she has not seen it. Having taken music lessons myself, I've used the Alfred Piano books before and I've never been unhappy with them. I'm sure this will be perfect for her.
I bought this book intending on handing it to my 9 year old and having him read through it and teach himself to play piano. When we got it, it read as though you must have a teacher and this was the homework book. Other than that it was fine.
