Calligraphy for Kidsby Eleanor Winters
For school, for art classes, for fun: this kid-friendly guide to the art of beautiful writing will be a hit anywhere. From the tools to the techniques to the fantastic projects, everything has been chosen specifically for children. Youngsters can use special, colorful, felt-tipped pens called chisel-edged markers to produce great-looking letters. The guidelines make it easier to get good results. Attractive pages, filled with brightly colored examples, get kids started with simple zigzags and then move on to small and large italics, gothic lettering, uncial, and Roman calligraphy. Children will enjoy using their new skills to write down favorite poems, fashion border designs, and create greeting cards and invitations.

I bought this book for my 6 year old daughter and we both absolutely love it. It's extremely clear on everything. The book illustrates the right and wrong ways on things such as spacing and letter size wonderfully. Although it's definitely geared towards kids, I would recomend this to anyone that is just starting out with calligraphy and would like a clear and simple guide.
The book was billed as a how-to book for children learning calligraphy, including various projects that could be done. I find it more of a lettering guide similar to others on the market. There is nothing wrong with this book, but it is not what I expected.
