Beginning with the child who is learning to write, the series develops writing talent into masterful, professional writing. The series is intended for children from preschool to grade 8, but many of the books, such as Calligraphy and European Handwriting may be taught in later grades. Handwriting is a talent that should be developed during the time of our youth but can always be brushed up anytime as an adult. It is a telling detail of the personality of a person. We can improve the appearances of our handwriting with diligent practice and still retain a personal style. Handwriting is also a useful tool in our education. Writing legible notes and letters gives a certain confidence in communication. Moreover, the content of all our books is useful for growing in Christian life.
