This adorable book is the perfect way to teach children to write their letters and numbers. Starting with the simplest tracing of lines and shapes, this book provides pages of writing practice for little fingers all through the alphabet and numbers. There is even a Certificate of Completion at the back of the book!

The colorful illustrations will engage the attention of young writers, and there are games and simple puzzles to solve. The lines for tracing are large, so that a child could use a crayon or marker in the beginning as they learn to trace the lines and hold a pencil correctly.
There are also directions for the parent or teacher about how to guide the child through the book, and help them learn to hold their pencil or crayon properly. The instructions are easy to follow.

This is the perfect book to prepare a young child for kindergarten, and teach them writing skills at home!
