Favorite Hymns for Kids Book Series

Favorite Hymns for Kids is a series of printed, bound books of Kim Snow’s simple, easy hymn arrangements for piano students. Though written for children, they are appropriate for any beginner regardless of age. Combining easy arrangements, instructions on how to “read” a hymn and music theory, Favorite Hymns for Kids is a proven method to train beginner students not only how to play the hymns on the piano, but also to develop a love for hymns and learn the great truths of the Christian faith.

“As a teacher, hymn writer, and one who has played the hymns for my church for nearly 30 years, I have learned what works — what kind of arrangements beginner students can read, understand, and actually learn to play. I have tested these hymns with my students, and they love them!”
