Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The spiral-bound Calligraphy for Kids by Tony Potter, illus. by Patrick Knowles, Potter, et al, sets out to teach kids the elegant art of calligraphy, in language they can understand (e.g., "the squiggly bits" get a sidebar explaining serif and sans serif). Starting with a brief history and a short lesson on the parts of a letter, this book provides readers with practical information about calligraphy and a special pen.
