    This is a great collection of songs, but the book is not meant for you to put it on the piano and start playing. It is a paperback book, so you can use it to learn the songs or help your Dad remember the words. To play from it, you...

    'd have to cut it up and mount it on something that stays open. Nonetheless, it's full of songs that seniors remember with such fondness that it's incredibly rewarding to play this music for them.
