This book uses a train theme that helps keep children’s attention and introduces new notes in train car pictures. The method employed in the book helps children to progress while having fun. Vocab, rhythm, technique, theory are all taught in the book and includes tips and tricks. To build on children’s natural inquisitiveness, the book even asks children questions to keep them thinking about what they’ve learned.
