Lots of practical tips to help kids have better writing skills. When I was eight, I was the last student in my class to have good handwriting. I would have loved all the pencil grips that you showed in your book. Another tip that I completely agree with is heaving a soft pencil.

The real value of the book is its uncomplicatedness and relevance to the world, in which children hold tablets as often as pencils. No child struggling with writing should be considered at risk of poor achievement before they have tried Lauren's tricks of the Occupational Therapy trade. The visual-motor coordination strategies feel natural and unpretentious, and that's why they work.
