I remember learning "Every Good Boy Does Fine" but I know a lot of folks learned "Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge" - either way, it works as a good way to learn the lines of the treble clef: EGBDF . Doesn't this book sounds interesting? Read the reviews. One reader said it best when he said "this is a keeper"!

For many years the following was used by school children to learn the planets but in 2006 this had to change:

In 2006 Pluto lost his Planethood Status so the following became the new mnemonic:
