Beautiful to look at and easy to play. I was able to play the songs with the children climbing over me. The children loved the songs and the pictures. We were able to have some good discussions about trains, farms, dolls, etc... Good for young children and probably good for older children who are learning to play the piano.

This is a beautiful book, pairing classic songs with famous works of art. My son enjoyed getting to hear all the songs, but adults will definitely appreciate the book more than children.

Shelves: professional
Wide variety of classic songs with beautiful art placed next to them. The arrangements are easy enough for a musician that is not a professional. Great addition to any home.

Picked up this gem at a library sale. It has a great collection of children's songs illustrated with classic art. The music is playable too.
