If you like the American Girl Doll Book Series, Try These!!
Right now, we are reading Hallie's Horrible Handwriting. Hallie seems to be having trouble with her handwriting and is getting very frustrated! Some friends in the class leave her some special treats to help her with her handwriting and her very special note to some important classroom guests turns out beautifully. What I absolutely love about each of these books by Valerie Tripp, is the section at the end of each of the books that explains a bunch of activities created by teachers and child specialists to help your children with skills, confidence and encouragement. In this book, there are a bunch of handwriting activities, including writing with flashlights in the dark and adding sound effects while writing at home. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
These books don't seem to be in print at this time, but are still available used on amazon.com. We own one of the books, but have borrowed the rest of them from our school library. They're out there! Apparently, there were even dolls to go along with each of the books! There are several in the series! Check them out!
