I've used this product for 4 of my children so far and will continue using it with the rest. It is not only a handwriting book, but also teaches a lot of preschool basics like colors, shapes, and numbers.
What a great way to introduce young children to writing in a wonderfully engaging way. The premise of the program is that all print letters are formed with big lines, little lines, big curves and little curves. Yep! That's it! Initially I was a bit concerned about the nontraditional formation of the letters, but after a child has mastered the formation, but there was no cause for concern. I highly recommend purchasing the teacher's guide (great stuff and history of the program), as well as the wooden manipulatives/letter formation cards. My kids have also loved the cd with songs relating to the letters that they are learning. The best, by far, handwriting program that I have used in all of my years of teaching. It is a systematic approach and JUST MAKES SENSE... and no tears are involved!
