THE BIG BOOK OF SONGS BY NUMBER
The main difference between PIANO IS EASY and THE BIG BOOK OF SONGS is that THE BIG BOOK contains songs which make use of the black AND white keys, whereas PIANO IS EASY has songs on the white keys only. This follows accepted piano curriculm where beginning lessons always start with the white keys alone to avoid confusion.
In addition, THE BIG BOOK contains chord symbols (chords are groups of three keys played with the left hand) so that you can begin playing with both hands. You can leave out the chords until you are ready to try them.
If you're like most kids starting piano, you'll want to play with both hands and find the black keys once you've gotten used to songs that use only the white keys.
After you've gotten started with either PIANO IS EASY or THE CHRISTMAS CAROL KIT, you'll want more fun songs to play, too.
BIG BOOK OF SONGS BY NUMBER (ISBN # 0-9718936-2-4) is the largest collection of songs by number available anywhere!
134 familiar, fun songs for beginner piano are packed onto 150 pages.

Includes easy step by step setup instructions for applying the removable, numbered stickers to your piano.
This book is designed as a sequel to PIANO IS EASY and THE CHRISTMAS CAROL KIT.
As a beginner at the piano, you played on the white keys only. But here you'll learn about the black keys of the piano, too, called "flats and sharps."
There are many familiar, fun songs that cannot be played on the white keys only, and we've gathered them here into one easy to read volume.
It's easy! Just put the numbered stickers on your piano and you're ready to play!
You'll learn how to play more complex songs using both the black and white keys of the piano, like The Entertainer, 12th Street Rag, America, Happy Birthday, Pop Goes the Weasel, Abba Dabba Honeymoon, After You've Gone, My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean, Star Spangled Banner, Yankee Doodle and many more great songs that your child should try at the piano.
The BIG BOOK OF SONGS BY NUMBER is identical in style to PIANO IS EASY and THE CHRISTMAS CAROL KIT, except that some of the songs are more challenging, involving the use of the black keys of the piano for the first time.
It's a great way for older children to get started at beginner piano, too.
It's easy! Complete step by step setup instructions for your piano are included.
