This is a colorful picture book of musical games and exercises and features first piano pieces at the earliest reading level for children ages 4-9. Each musical element is introduced in a clear, interactive way, providing opportunities for the child to bond with a parent and/or instructor. Quarter notes, half notes, eighth notes and quarter rests are taught experientially with “Rhythm Games” and some favorite tunes like My Dreidel and Jingle Bells can be learned quickly with awareness of skills of pitch differentiation, rhythm and fingering. The book starts with simpler character pieces, some with only two or three notes. The cheery and charming illustrations make this a fun musical ride. Staves are introduced in the following book of the same series.
