    I first purchased For Children in 1970 and planned to learn the pieces to play for my nephew who wasn't even born yet.Six years later he was born, and by the time he was a Dad 33 years later i was still dreaming of playing to his children...

    , my two grand nieces. When I went to find the music it wasn't there. I decided to repurchase the item and I did. Thank you Sheet Music for having the exact book. I love these pieces. Not only are they easy to play but they illustrate a good spirit.

    These adaptations of East European melodies and rhythms into enchanting small pieces by the great 20th-century composer Bela Bartok constitute the finest learning masterial one can ask for.
