The Cancionero de Piano de Elmo is a Spanish language interactive songbook that features a toy piano keyboard. Children can develop their musical skills and hand-eye coordination by playing songs with Elmo and other popular Sesame Street characters. The book is designed for children ages 18 months and older.
Each page features lyrics that are set to a familiar song and a simplified version of the melody's sheet music; children can use the keyboard to play along with the melody. The pages are displayed horizontally, which means that they rest directly over the piano keys. When a child presses an icon button, a melody plays. At the same time, a bright LED for each key lights up in sync with the melody so that children can follow along with their fingers.
The Cancionero de Piano de Elmo also enables children to play a song on their own by matching the musical notes on the pages to the piano keys. Or they can use their imagination to compose new songs on the piano. The book includes these nine songs, with lyrics:
The Cancionero de Piano de Elmo has a sturdy cover and heavy board pages that withstand rough handling. Children can prop up the book's front cover to make it look like a grand piano. The book comes with three replaceable long-life AG-13 batteries and conforms to the toy safety requirements of ASTM F963-03.
