Completed in four days, these 24 fanciful miniatures capture some delightful observations and experiences that any youth might enjoy. This is the first American edition based on the composer's original manuscript. Since the pieces were published in 1878, they have become part of the standard educational piano literature and make a necessary addition to the Schirmer Performance Editions.
