In the world of texts and email, more and more schools are replacing handwriting curriculum with computer-based lessons, and children have a harder time using a pen or pencil than a keyboard or touchscreen. Therefore, it’s crucial for parents to encourage their child’s handwriting education at home. While penmanship may no longer be a vital business skill, nothing adds that personal touch more than a beautiful handwritten note or thank-you card.

Fun and Friendly Calligraphy for Kids features colorful step-by-step photos, easy-to-follow instructions and fun practice activities designed to teach youngsters the art of modern calligraphy. Children will learn pointed pen and brush pen writing techniques as well as ways to flourish and decorate the alphabet, creating their own individual style.

This book not only teaches children methods of modern calligraphy, it inspires them to use the beautiful art of hand-lettering in the real world, with helpful tips for writing penpal letters, addressing envelopes, and creating monograms, autographs, logos, stationery and more!
