Hawaiian Songs for Ukulele

Product Review (submitted on December 23, 2012):
This book presents a collection of melodic, simple songs (though I had only heard of three of them prior to getting the book). As advertised, it's set up for people to first pick through the melody enough times to learn the tune, so that they can then sing the melody while learning to strum the chords.

All the music is in a rather large font (at least compared to the sheet music I'm used to), and includes a pictoral diagram of the chord shape above each chord. (Again, helpful for beginners.) Though, this means each page can only fit 5 or 6 staves, and so the songs only include one or two verses of lyrics.
