Internet safety

Children, make sure you follow these three simple rules when using the internet:

  1. Always ask an adult's permission before using the internet.
  2. Never give out personal information, such as your name, address, school or telephone number.
  3. If a website asks you to type in your name or email address, check with an adult first.

For more tips, see Internet safety for children.
 

Adults - we recommend that children are supervised while on the internet. The content of a website may change at any time and Usborne Publishing is not responsible for content on sites other than its own.

About this book

Keyboard, drumming and xylophone books
My first keyboard book

  • A sturdy keyboard attached to a book of well-known tunes, with colour-coded notes so that anyone can play them.
  • Tunes include Twinkle, Twinkle, Frère Jacques, Ode to Joy and Row, Row, Row your Boat and there are ideas for making up simple tunes too.
  • Each note is represented by a colour that corresponds to the same colour on the keyboard, so even very young children can pick out the tunes.
  • With delightful illustrations, this is a lovely gift that can be taken anywhere.

Press Reviews
