Thomas & Friends: Play & Learn
Thomas & Friends Play and Learn Piano Songs is a children's sound book with a 24-note piano keyboard. Beginning piano players can practice playing the piano as they play and sing 10 familiar songs with Thomas the Tank Engine, James, Percy, Sir Topham Hatt, and the rest of the gang from the Island of Sodor. Designed for children 18 months and older, the book features colorfully illustrated Thomas & Friends scenes along with the lyrics and sheet music of a song on each two-page spread.
Thomas & Friends Play and Learn Piano Songs teaches children how to play a song by matching the colored letter beneath each musical note in the sheet music with the piano key labeled with the same-color letter. If the label is below a white key, kids press that white key; if it is above a black key, they press that black key. Printed lyrics enable children to sing along to the music. Each page is displayed horizontally, enabling children to see the open pages directly over the piano keys. The book lies flat when open, keeping children's hands free to play the keyboard.
