After being gently told at our first kindergarten parent-teacher conference that our reads-at-2nd grade child was writing barely at pre-K level, it was suggested that we work at writing and other fine motor skills at home. Along with a prescribed dose of Pick-Up Sticks, Jenga, and Play-Doh (seriously) we needed to practice letters.

This book is just the ticket. Not babyish. Lines slightly larger than standard "wide ruled" paper, but not ridiculously so. Good strong top and bottom lines with a colored dotted line in the middle to help guide letter formation. The first section focuses on individual letters. One page per letter, capitals up top, lowercase starting halfway down. Format for this initial section has one letter with arrows, a line of traceables, and plenty of blank lines for practice. Next section is individual words, one page of "a" words, page of "b", etc. Trace, then copy the words. Final section is full sentences, which helps with between-word spacing.

Frankly, this book is probably too boring for a young preschooler. There are some colored pictures for each page, but there's no coloring or letter games.

However, if you need a book for an older kid to focus on writing skills, and just writing skills, this is perfect.

I expected something different, I guess, but this is just lined paper with a line of capital letters to trace at the top, and half-way down, a line of lower-cased letters to trace of the same letter. It's not very engaging for my son. We have a notepad of lined paper from the dollar store, and I can write letters for him to trace just as easily.

Gave my grand-daughter this book. She will be 3 soon and is very into writing, drawing, anything to do with paper and writing utensils. She knows about half the alphabet by sight and this book is part of the reason why. Her writing is not legible, but the activities will help her improve that skill as well. Recommend this resource for anyone wanting to help their little one improve handwriting and alphabet skills

I was hoping this book would be a little thicker, with more pages for practice. Each letter only has one page to practice on. I was hoping for more blank lines for my daughter to practice. I ended up buying a completely blank-lined beginners book at the store.

I bought the book because I was looking for age appropriate basic writing technique book for my 4.5 y.o. The book claims it is designed for ages 4-8, however, it is definitely not age appropriate for 4 y.o. kids. The letters are tiny, the pages are lined. Any OT specialist would tell that very young kids (especially boys) can only start writing really big sized letters, slowly downsizing, and only by the age of 6 they would be able to write letters on the lined pages. Carson-Delossa Pre-K and K home workbooks are much better for young kids.

Excellent tool for handwriting. My son's writing improved within a week of practising with this book. Will purchase this for my other kids.

This is the same type of well organized practice work that helped me get nice handwriting. I recommend it :)

I am 18 years old and bought this because I am trying to become ambidextrous and this book is just as expected. It first has the ABC's and then moves to words and then to sentences.

I would buy this again and/or recommend it to anyone.

My daughter's pre-school teacher recommended summer handwriting practice for my daughter to make sure that she would be ready for Kindergarten this fall. My daughter loves these books and sat down and practiced for almost an hour after she got them. I like that it has letters in the beginning, but also sentences later on in the book to introduce her to something more than just writing her name over and over again.

This book is meant for kindergarten-1st grade. This is far too advanced for the typical 3-4 year old. There is nothing to trace past one line of letters. The rest is all free hand.
