Whether you're a parent or a teacher, if you want to use this method, go to the company's website and sign up as a teacher to access lots of resources.
I really like certain aspects of this method. Each finger is identified by an animal, and the books are great for introducing basic concepts in a fun way. The child learns things like loud versus soft, high notes versus low notes, black keys versus white keys, and so on. My daughter really enjoys the little stories included in the books and the simple activities.
However, I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because I feel it's not musical enough. The books don't actually (so far anyway - halfway through book 2) teach the child any songs. The supplemental materials do include some songs for the teacher to play, but I feel that's not enough, and in stark contrast to the Suzuki method, for example. I remember clearly my own pleasure when I learned my first piano song - even though it only featured two or maybe notes! I think the joy of the piano comes from the pleasure of making music, and I think that's a bit lacking in these books.
With that being said, I think these books have plenty to recommend them and can be used in combination with other books that dive into making music a little more quickly.
