> Will Schmid, hal Leonard Method: only book one seems available. This appears well organized, but I have at least one 7-year-old who would benefit from book 2, since she can already read the basics.
> Mel Bay: similar story. One of their particularly old method books is available, but only the first book, which is very basic.
