My daughter needed this book for her piano lessons and it's perfect she flew right through it and it has a great foundation for beginning learners.
Of the 3 brands we tried for lower elementary piano books, this is by far our favorite (parent and student agree). Using this along with the Performance and Theory books, I have been able to teach my 6 year old this past year without paying for a piano teacher.

Bought this and the other primer level books for my 7 yr old daughter who wants to learn piano. Her teacher recommend we get these and start with these so she can practice at home. She does very well with all the books that we got her. Very easy to follow. I am musically inclined and I play many instruments.
My girls just started piano lessons. My 7 year old is using these books. They move at just the right pace for her, and the way in which the information is presented is easy to understand and grasp quickly. I would highly recommend these to anyone starting their kids on piano. It's even helping me!
