Subject: Index: The Golden Songbook
No explanation in this one as to age/grade suggestions, although it has the appearance of a "teaching" book for beginning (lower elementary grades) children. Full "piano" score for most songs (some chords as notated look to me like they could require 7 or 8 fingers on one hand(?), but I assume a good pianist would make them look easy).
