My daughters handwriting on the other hand is nice but it’s big and I am trying to get her to keep them in between the lines like she is suppose to. Perfect Reading, Beautiful Handwriting by Everyday Education, LLC has been making a difference in how both of them write. My daughter more so then my son.
