Practicing handwriting has been found to greatly enhance children’s learning ability and copywork books make a really fun way for kids to practice while learning about an interest or something related to another subject that they’re studying.
We’ve found these great little poems in the Thornton Burgess Bedtime Stories to be great little “proverbs” for children that are sometimes funny, thoughtful, or just cheerful.
