Fun and Friendly Calligraphy for Kids: A Hands-On Guide to Creative Lettering by Virginia Lucas Hart

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. Penmanship may not be a vital business skill, but nothing adds that personal touch more than a beautiful handwritten letter or thank you card. It is crucial for parents to encourage their child’s penmanship education at home. Fun and Friendly Calligraphy for Kids features hundreds of colorful step-by-step photos, easy-to-follow instructions and fun practice activities specifically designed to teach youngsters the art of modern calligraphy. Children will learn several traditional writing techniques in addition to learning how to mix their own ink, decorate and enhance the alphabet, and create their own fun 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 instructions to design their own monograms, autographs, stationery, thank you cards and more.

Fun and Friendly Calligraphy for Kids can be an easy way for anyone to learn calligraphy and a fun way! The book is very nicely designed and really attractive with its front cover. That is what really grabbed my attention. Of course, what is interesting about this book is that this will help you learn calligraphy and do it right! Since to learn this type of writing can be tricky if you're starting out, especially for children. However, this book has changed my opinion of its difficulty by making those letters and words flow with ease, just by practice and following each step. The guidance inside is perfect for a beginner or child starting out. It's not difficult to understand, made simple enough for children to grasp the concept and helps you create beautiful lettering. The beginning goes over tools, style, terms and much of the things you'll need to know before engaging in this type of writing. Of course, there is some beautiful examples inside and many different writing tools you can use to do calligraphy, but first-time starters a pencil with an eraser is one writing tool I'd use. Therefore, you can try perfecting this type of flowing writing over and over again. No matter, the tool you write with, it is awesome that you can use any type of good writing tool to create beautiful flowing letters and words that just catches everyone's attention like it's a beautiful piece of art Finally, this book really can help one learn calligraphy, especially those starting out! I know for a fact that this is perfect for a child to learn from, but even adults can use this great guide. It's practically a course on calligraphy in a book. There isn't anything left out and it's broken down into simple steps to set up to creating beautiful letters on everything you write on! "I received a copy to provide my review"
