I'm no child and I love this book! I'm also no great pianist, but I can read music, play a little, and am willing to practice until I get it. This is one of my favorite books for practice because the great kids' songs make me smile, so it's really fun to learn them. It's one of the happiest books I've ever owned. Who couldn't love "Sing a Song of Sixpence" or "Frere Jacques" ?
