Clear, legible handwriting is important for your child's success in school and in his future career. BJU Press Handwriting teaches children how to maintain consistent slant, readable spacing, and neatness as they write. Since the adjustment from "circle and stick" print to cursive is often difficult for children, BJU Press has developed a precursive style that guides the natural slant of your child's writing and builds a foundation for forming cursive letters. Each handwriting book has a theme that provides interesting activities to do for practice. In the early grades, handwriting practice parallels the letters and sounds that your child is learning in his reading lessons.
