Handwriting Without Tears - Cursive

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

Handwriting Without Tears is a terrific way to teach your child to write, especially if you have a reluctant writer. When it comes time to learn to write cursive, in our experience, girls are much more excited to learn how to write cursive than boys are! This program was great for both our boys, and our girls, as it is all very nicely explained, simply done, and taught with ease, that makes learning cursive not so overwhelming. It's nice to see happy smiles while they do their writing, and not hear groaning and complaining the whole time. :+)
