Good: a fun concept for getting kids to enjoy writing!
Wish list: Tear-away pages, more than one line for the sentence, correct lining up of the letters
Cons: As others have mentioned the letters do not line up with the given lines...( I actually saw this before purchasing)... But I made it a fun point to quiz my 7 year old about what was wrong on the page. It took her about a minute but she passed. I used the mistake as a learning point. I don't have her trace the letters but she does re-write the funny sentences. She is artsy so she loves the drawing aspect and creating her own sentence. We homeschool and I leave this for last because I tell her that handwriting is an art and I want to see her best art. I just need her to have fun and not be overwhelmed so this is a bonus book for us despite all the "wish list" items.
3 stars because the main concept of correct placement is lost. Wish it was less than $6 as well. I would say $3 would be appropriate for this.
I’m really like this book and Ana teaches penmanship perfectly but for fourth grade I thought it was a little bit below their age appropriateness. I wish there was more of the search puzzles and decoding puzzles. They were too many blank pages that were for students to practice writing which I could’ve printed. But overall the book is great the kids like it and that’s what’s important is it encourages them to do their best.
