Handwriting is an important skill that needs to be learned in school. In Letter Tracing: Handwriting Practice for Preschool and Kindergarten, author Ceri Clark guides children in letter tracing practice for both capital and lower case letters. Tracing letters is the first step in writing. The whole two pages of tracing letters, then a series of words that begin with that letter is fun and helps with spelling as well as motor control. It is the perfect book for children to write the alphabet perfectly right from day one, as if they were born doing it!
I find the author's concept of introducing how to write letters ideal for children beginning school. The fun and interactive manner in which the book is written helps children develop their young brains. The book is not only useful for writing, but also enhances vocabulary by teaching children new words. It is a must-have for all school and children's libraries as it makes reading and writing fun and interesting. Parents can keep a copy at home to help their children practice their handwriting, making education fun. The book can be reused if written in with a pencil. The chapters, the letter jumble, letter practice, and the 'find the letter' game are all engaging and will actually make children enjoy their writing work. These types of books are good for children as they are not only fun, but also enable children to learn new things without giving them the feeling that they are learning.
