    First to find another great SCM resource. This looks wonderful and it’s terrific to have it top-bound. You guys really outdo yourselves.



    Just wondering if one style is more popular than another? I like D’Nealian but I think my daughter would have better luck with Bloser. I am usually an e-book person, but I like the top binding and will probably purchase that one. Thanks!



      It’s an intriguing question, Elizabeth. We find it interesting that we usually see twice as many orders for Zaner Bloser as for D’Nealian. I’m not sure why, unless it is because the straight up-and-down writing is easier for many children or because that is the style most mothers learned when they were small and feel most comfortable with.

      Regardless, choose the style that will work best for your child.



    Oh no! I just purchased Pentime, and now I want this! This looks amazing, and I love that it has the spiral binding at the top!



    I love your penmanship products. I would really like to see them offered in Italic format as well .



      I would too!!!



    How much material is in this book? Is it intended to be a whole year’s work of copywork?



      Print to Cursive Proverbs is not intended to be a whole year’s worth of copywork, simply a tool to use to teach the child how to write cursive. However, it depends on the child’s skill level and how many days per week you work on learning cursive. If you do a page or two per day, the book would last approximately one term. If you do a page only a couple of times a week, it would take longer to work through the entire book. Once the child has learned cursive, you can use the Hymns in Prose copybook (cursive version) to give more practice.

    Is there a sample of the D’Nealian? I don’t know what that looks like.



    Ok If your even wondering about purchasing this or if you’ve purchase something else but wish you would have gotten is…..BUY IT! This is WONDERFUL! My son has tried a few things and it just wasn’t what he needed. I saw this and got excited, not only because SCM puts out wonderful material, I was excited because it didn’t cost a arm and a leg! So I ordered it. And let me tell you my son has learned more and is more confident with his cursive than he has ever been wi anything else. I love that he is still working on his printing WHILE learning cursive. This is BEAUTIFULLY done and worth every penny. I wish it had come out a few years ago as my struggling 10 yo, I believe would have done so much better we this than the other things we used. Thank you.

    After buying this, I noticed that there aren’t any capital letters. How and when do you teach those?



      The capital letters are taught after the lowercase. A few that are similar to the lowercase are scattered throughout the book, but the majority of the capitals instruction begins on page 95.

    I was wondering why the print doesn’t have the three lines? I noticed the cursive does, but not the print. I LOVE the book, but my kids aren’t at a place where they can write neatly on a blank line without the top line, the middle dotted line along with the bottom line. Thank you!



      Hi, Ruth. There are fewer lines for the print portions because the students should be very comfortable with printing—have mastered it, really—before we recommend they attempt cursive. If they still need three-line printing practice, the Child’s Copybook Reader books would provide that extra practice as well as gradually move them toward not needing those extra lines.

    I absolutely LOVE this book. My children, who have previously balked at doing copywork, also love this book. They feel so much more comfortable with the way it is set up. They are writing actual words that mean something to them! Even my son, who is a great complainer, is happy to do his copywork with this text. Thank you SO very much for creating this. And for all those who might be waffling about purchasing this, don’t hesitate!

    Copying this from my recent forum post…

    Just wanted to give praise for this wonderful book! We are LOVING it! The lessons are short & simple yet, effective and it transitions beautifully. My daughter (7) has even gotten up and done the next lesson independently the last 2 mornings. The only tiny, thing I would change is having at least 1 example of each letter with the little numbered arrows showing the specific direction/flow of the letter. I actually had to figure out “f” because it was different from the style I learned (or maybe I have done mine wrong all along?). But, we still LOVE it regardless! I highly recommend it.
