My 5 year old daughter started taking piano lessons this year. Her teacher insisted on starting with this book. I couldn't believe it, but by the end of her first lesson my daughter was sight-reading music. The book focuses on landmarks...Landmark G in the G (Treble) clef and landmark F in the F (Bass) clef. It starts you off from the beginning knowing where you are in relation to the second line on the staff. This prepares the student right from the beginning to learn about intervals (seconds, thirds, fourths, etc.). I was always a poor sight-reader because I was not taught properly from the beginning. This book teaches you properly from the beginning!
