When trying to learn to write brought her little boy to tears, Jan Olsen found a remedy. She shares her creative suggestions and learning tips in this excellent "how-to" book which helps you determine if your child is ready to start handwriting. If not, no problem-there are plenty of hands-on readiness activities such as using "letter manipulatives" (pattern and instructions provided). This program includes unique ideas for helping children learn to write their letters and numbers without frustration, tips for the left-handed child, discussion on why it is important to teach capitals first and why standard handwriting paper just confuses children. The author even has remedies for the common mistakes children make, such as letter reversals, floating letters, etc.

I was surprised at how expensive it was for a book but was willing to give it a shot. I wasn't sure how a book could change his writing but didn't know what else to do.
The book is full of practical pages, exercises and even fun little games to work with your child. I was surprised my son didn't fight me on it and actually thought it was fun! I was worried it would be a fight since he already had homework to do and this was extra.
Basically he learned how to write incorrectly and would start at the bottom of the line and kind of go backwards, making his writing really sloppy. It wasn't an easy thing to re-train and we still work on it daily but I do think this book has helped tremendously. It gave me key phrases to use and a fun way to work with him.
I do still think it's over-priced and that's the only reason it isn't getting five stars but do I think it's worth it? Yes.
