Y begin anywhere in the series even though they have never before learned italic Each book begins with a comprehensive review for that particular level For example if a child is in the 4th grade and can write at that grade level they can begin with Book E without having to work through any of the previous books adding to the versatility and cost effectiveness of this seri I got the 4th edition even though I bought the one advertised for 3rd edition I'm wondering what is the difference between the 3rd and 4th edition? The binding is on the top of the 4th edition Can somebody tell me if it's the same with previous editions? Overall the book looks great no complaints It just has me wondering about previous editions

Italic Handwriting Series Book AWhich group letters with similar strokes together and progress logically from simple tocomplex forms Every page has models to trace letters to write beginning at the dot indicators provided and in the blank spaces with a best letter box to complete on each alphabet page showcasing the child's best work for that particular letter The books were designed so that a child ma My 5 year old has been writing words for some time but has not had any formal instruction until recently He really enjoys these lessons The letters are grouped together by how the letters are formed instead of alphabetically it has made learning to write an enjoyable experience for him I really like the one stroke method it will make it much easier for him to learn cursiveThe book itself does not stay open well but I took it to Staples to have it spiral bound I do think the letter 't' is formed a little strange it is written with the curve at the bottom as a type written 't' is written Although I do think the Getty Dubay italics is a wonderful way to learn to print you may want to look ahead at what this style of cursive looks like it is distinctive and not what one typically thinks of as cursive I do think it would be easy to use a different style of cursive later on though
