The series is intended for children from preschool to grade 8. However, Books 4 to 9 and European Handwriting, may be used even by adults.  Handwriting is a talent that one can always brush up on anytime or even begin as an adult.  We can improve the appearance of our handwriting with diligent practice and still retain a personal style. The results of our handwriting are always a telling detail of our personality. Handwriting legible notes and letters gives a certain confidence in communication. Fortunately the privacy of letters is protected by law.
