Hi all, brand new member here, and I have a question- What beginner book do you recommend that I use?

I just got the bug to start recorder again. I played in school 25 years ago (soprano/tenor recorder for 3 years and viola for 5 years), so I'm not completely unfamiliar with reading music, but it's been a long time. I've done some tutorials online ( which were great, but I think having a book with more songs to study from would also be helpful.

I'm leaning toward the book "Method for the Recorder" by Mario Duschenes. Is this good? Is there a better one?

I bought this book even though it's for children and comic book style story lines in it lol.. i found it quite good for teaching it comes with a cd you play along with..
Recorder Wizard - by emma coulthard
it's got very nice short pieces with very basic notes that when your done you easily move from one note to the other, I quite enjoyed it and it was only $11.96 (canadian plus tax )..
