Hello everyone,
I am new to this board and new to home ed. I am seeking handwriting resources for my 5yo. I read in another forum about Gareth Lewis' book "One to One" and apparently it has foolproof handwriting lessons. I tried googling it but I can't find a sample of the alphabet. Does anyone here use this book and can tell me if the handwriting if manuscript, old fashioned cursive like Copperplate, or what? All info gratefully received :-)

I have the book and it shows several ways of writing the alphabet in both capital, lower case, and different forms of each.

Thank you for the reply. Can I ask you one more question? I am in the UAE so I have to order the book and wait 2-3 weeks. Is the book worth it or should I go with the Nelson handwriting scheme instead?

I personally thought it was a good buy. Grandson is 12 now and we've used it a lot.
I've also used the nelson books but just kept going back to one-to-on.

That was quick. You've made me day. Cheers.

I meant to say "my" day not "me" day. Oops!
