The Lovereading4Kids comment

Young children will be able to provide a musical accompaniment to the Christmas festivities with this appealing novelty book. At the bottom is a sturdy keyboard, notes coded with coloured circles or stars, and on each pages there’s a favourite Christmas song or carol, nine in all, and a colour key so that children can pick out the tune. There’s a little introduction to each piece of music while extra notes at the beginning encourage children to listen to the sounds and chords the different notes make, and to try out their own tunes too. The illustrations are very sweet, featuring little mice in scenes relevant to the songs. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

My First Christmas Keyboard Book by Sam Taplin

A brilliant introduction for young children to the keyboard/piano, and a fabulous Christmas gift that all the family will enjoy playing with! Whilst no knowledge of reading music is required to enjoy this book, the notes are shown in the correct positions on the staves, so children can get an idea of how musical notation works - a valuable skill if they choose to go on to learn an instrument

Each note is represented by a different colour, which corresponds to the same colour on the keyboard, allowing even very young children to pick out the tunes. Tunes include 'Jingle Bells', 'Silent Night', 'We Three Kings' and 'Deck the Halls'.
