This book pretty much includes every traditional carol you can think of, and about half of the most famous pop ones you could probably think of as well. I'm very picky about sheet music collections like this; many collections and budget books tend not to advertise that they're fake books (one note in each hand to pluck out the melody). As I've been playing piano for almost 20 years now, I prefer something *slightly* more challenging than that. I'd put this collection at medium difficulty. This is also perfect if you want really straightforward arrangements of Christmas carols (which is what I wanted). These are NOT solo piano arrangements with dramatic flourishes that complicate or hide the melody, but these ARE great arrangements if you want people to sing along! (Chords and lyrics are also included in every song.)

One complaint only, and it was to be expected: The arrangements of the pop songs simply aren't as good. I always get sheet music for pop songs hoping that it would be the piano part you hear in the song, but it's inevitably the melody line in the right hand with repetitive eighth notes in the left. Oh well.
This book has every Christmas song I could think of included in it. We will never run out of songs to sing around the piano!
This is a nice Christmas song book. The book is filled with a ton of your "childhood" songs, but I noticed that they are written in different keys than that of the ones I was brought up with. Still a fantastic collection of 100 songs like "All I Want For Christmas", Silent Night, Silver Bells, I'll be HOme For Christmas, and many others.
If you can get a good price on amazon, like I did, definitely worth picking it up. The one I got had all the guitar chords, piano and vocals in it.
Great value for the money.
Great selection and great price!
I now own 3 of the Budget books and I love them all. They are easy to use and somehow have all the right songs! You will never go wrong buying one of these books!
This songbook appears to have every Christmas song by Barry Manilow and by Maria Carey, the authoritative collection of Christmas songs about tampons, and every Christmas song ever written that whines about world peace. It does not include The Little Drummer Boy, Carol of the Bells, or Do You Hear What I Hear. The musical scores are mixed in quality (i.e., "budget"); some have so much spacing that they look like first grade sheet music.
