These cute piano books have an attached nine-key piano keyboard and nine sound buttons that children use to play along and sing to nine children songs. The book features lyrics on each page that are set to a familiar song and a color-coded version of the song's sheet music; children match the color codes to the piano keyboard colors to play the song. When a sound button is pressed, a song will play. At the same time a bright light for each key illuminates in sync with the melody, so a child can follow along on the keyboard with his/her fingers.
