I bought this book for my child who is beginning cursive writing. It was very disappointing. There were not many repetitions of the strokes or letters for practice, and the spaces were small. I tried to make it work with a notebook for extra practice. However, I came to a place where the child is also supposed to copy words for practice that include letters which have not been taught yet. At that point, I decided to be done with the book.
I bought this for my 2nd grade homeschooling son because he was having a little trouble keeping up with the curriculum I originally bought. (It was also 3rd grade level.) I like it so much I am going to buy another book for his twin sister, even though she is doing fine with the original curriculum, because I think the teaching method is much more clear and it shows how to connect the letters better.
