There is a huge number of tutor books on the market, many of which have been around for decades and are tried and tested. When looking at newer, more up-to-date books, it can be difficult to decide what to buy.
Highly recommended: Get Set Piano books 1 & 2 plus Pieces books 1 & 2 by Heather Hammond and Karen Marshall. Older children have enjoyed them too!
Good all rounder: Piano Time books, 1, 2, & 3 by Pauline Hall from about 7-8 years upwards. Piano Time Pieces books 1, 2, & 3 – additional repertoire.
Tunes for 10 Fingers and More Tunes for Ten Fingers by Pauline Hall. Suitable for very young children.
The Classic Piano Course books 1-3 by Carol Barratt.
It’s Never Too Late To Play Piano by Pam Wedgwood. Plenty of material but layout a little muddled in places.
Restart Piano by Karen Marshall.
A Dozen a Day, mini book – Book 5 by Edna Mae Burnham. Short and to the point.
101 Exercises opus 261 by Carl Czerny. Very good for any age and adults, especially re-starters. Not for complete beginners.
Flip-a-rhythm series. Excellent for mastering rhythm reading.
