Stacey Coolidge's Fancy Smancy Cursive Handwritingby Barbara Esham, Mike Gordon (Illustrator)
How does Stacey do it? How can Carolyn not do it? Carolyn has been practicing cursive handwriting every day for weeks, and she is not getting any closer to Frederick, the class guinea pig. It's a good thing that her teacher, Mrs. Thompson, is able to turn her frustration into confidence.

The books are so much fun. The illustrations are wonderful. But what makes these books so important is that a very strong and important message for all children but even more important for children that are different or facing challenges in school. At the end of each story there are recommendations for parents that give the parents options and alternatives of what their choices are.

As a teacher, and a parent, I will say this book, and the others in the series, are a must read for parents and educators. The endorsers, many who are nationally recognized experts, knew what they were supporting as they reviewed this series. In fact, I have never seen a children's book series receive such impressive reviews. I hope the author continues on her journey to help kids (and parents) relate to such critical information. Job well done.
This book, and the other three titles in the series, should be available to all children. A must read to explore individual learning styles and the true meaning of success and intelligence. Fun and thought provoking~even for the adults reading along!
Fancy Smancy Cursive Handwriting~ thank you for helping my daughter see her many gifts. Thank you also for helping her peers see the value in her work.
