The book takes the young writer from basic pencil handing and co-ordination exercises through to formation of letters and simple short words. Each page is an entertaining mix of games and puzzles, which parent and child will enjoy doing together.   The letters and examples all   have the lead in and out for cursive script so they can join together as the writing advances.

    My child is nine and has been singled out at school for one to one in handwriting practice. He was ambidextrous and really couldn’t choose which hand he preferred which held him back and caused much frustration.
    Would these books help or hinder seeing the school has started this work with him.

    I would appreciate your thoughts
