Running Press Pick Up Your Pen, The Art of Handwriting

Beautiful, whimsical, and about as far from a boring black-and-white handwriting book as you can possibly get, Monica Dengo's Pick Up Your Pen is an inspiring guide to italic handwriting.

The two-page spread focuses on the same letter. The left-hand page features colorful, whimsically drawn letters on a blank, unlined page that encourages experimentation; the right-hand page features italic instruction with model letters to copy and lines to practice on. Even the numbers at the bottom of the page are put to use, with directional arrows showing how to correctly form them. In a word dominated by keyboards and computers, inspire kids to see the creativity, line, and movement in the art of handwriting once again! 107 cream-colored pages, softcover.

This is a great book for kids who have already had instruction on basic letter formation (particularly in the Italic handwriting style). It is enough practice everyday without going overboard on repetition. This book provides a bit of an introduction to cursive, but not comprehensive. The blank section on each two-page spread is a lot of fun for making art with letters. My daughter has enjoyed this book over other options in the past, but it is perfect for what she needs right now. Overall, I would recommend this book for kids who just need daily practice, but not for kids who need lots of instruction on letter formation.
