Left Hand Writing Skills Successful Smudge-Free Writing by Mark Stewart, Heather Stewart


Left Hand Writing Skills Successful Smudge-Free Writing by Mark Stewart, Heather Stewart

The third book of the Left Hand Writing Skills series consolidates the development of good writing habits. The writer can now apply all that has been learned to writing with a pen. Ink is the real test of success for the left-handed writer! First, to create words which are accurately formed and legible, and then to avoid spoiling them by smudging as the left hand follows the pen across the page. Successful smudge-free writing can overcome the frustration of so many left-handers. Essay-writing, homework, and other essential written work can all become a source of satisfaction: no longer a cause of disappointment. The 27 worksheets provide further variety in activities and interest, all linked to handwriting. From early Egyptian tablets to Leonardo's curious mirror-writing, to invitations, shopping lists and menu cards. Fascinating illustrations and full colour presentation once again keep the interest of the left-handed student while the correct left hand writing habits are finally fully absorbed.


Invaluable for left-handers learning how to form their letters and numbers. Beautifully presented, the series makes learning to write fun. For the first time, left-handers will have the advantage over right-handers and won't be overlooked in the classroom. Just having the spine at the top makes it so much easier for the left hand to relax. I would recommend it, with no hesitation, to parents and teachers. Diane G Paul - Broadcaster and author of The Left-hander's Handbook.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
