This is a beautiful and painless way to work on your child's handwriting Handwriting was becoming tedious and arduous using conventional workbooks--the lengthy pages were discouraging for my second grade daughter and I was not seeing any improvement For third grade I decided to try something different and came across this program Copying only one sentence a day her handwriting has improved more in these first months of school than all of last year She also loves the beautiful artwork and has been inspired to begin drawing and painting on her own This program is a little more expensive than most handwriting programs so we are copying the work on separate pages so that my son will be able to use the books too This is truly a 'handwriting without tears' in fact it produces smiles appreciation for art and beautiful handwriting

I was responsible for some of those "emphatic customer requests" for these copywork books so it only seems fair that I should add a review of the materials I had a daughter who was very resistant to handwriting practice of any kind--mostly because she has strong perfectionist tendencies and was so upset by every imperfect letter she just couldn't go on I eventually gave up on print feeling we needed to move away from past frustrations and began looking for materials to teach cursive I came across the "Pictures in Cursive" series and was instantly charmed The reproduced paintings are absolutely beautiful and they are combined with copywork sentences that draw the child's attention to details of the artwork they might not otherwise notice For my highly visual daughter the combination was magical--she was intrigued enough by the paintings that she happily copied the sentences without stressing about perfect letter formation These are by far the most elegant handwriting books I have ever seenAs noted the first book is a primer in cursive letter formation Each letter is taught separately and also connected to other letters in words Some students may need more practice in individual letter formation than that provided in this one book My daughter was OK with moving directly on the the next book but we did tear out the page from the primer book that showed the formation of all the letters for her to use as a "cheat sheet" if she needed to be reminded of how to form a letter later onI think these books will work best for children who have a strong visual orientation They are also a wonderful resource for any parent who wants to include picture study in their children's education but has trouble carving out that extra time You may find the books hard to throw away when they have served their handwriting purposes Use them for family picture study frame a page and hang it on the wall use it to inspire your family's artistic endeavors--or just save the copywork book as a lovely addition to your child's homeschool portfolio
