"Many of these pieces are used in exam syllabuses or as competition repertoire. Kabalevsky's style is easily accessible for young players, making this publication a good purchase for piano teachers. John York's grading and commentary of the 30 pieces is helpful for those seeking a second opinion."
"What a lovely edition. Excellent comments; the editor's enthusiasm is contagious and students enjoy it. Rating of the difficulty of the pieces is quite helpful for teachers. Nice glossy cover. Good price."
