i purchased this for my son, who was at the end of 5th grade, soon starting 6th. Public school did not teach cursive very much and when i started homeschooling him, i wanted to make sure he could write cursive. Not only did this do exactly that, but he learned new scripture every week. He loved drawing/coloring on the weekly review sheets that come with it as well. We are now working on Cursive F workbook!
I really like these handwriting books. I have used A Reason for Handwriting for Grades 2, 3, and now 5. I love that it is scripture based. I have used other penmanship books, but the writing assignments got to be too long, and my daughter started to dislike handwriting. I changed back to A Reason for Handwriting, and she is enjoying her handwriting assignments now.
We are a homeschool family. This is our fifth year using A Reason For Handwriting. My daughter looks forward to her new handwriting book each fall. I like the Bible verses and she enjoys writing them on Fridays and coloring the final page. I highly recommend this product as a handwriting resource, both in the printed/manuscript editions and in the cursive editions.
