Item description for My First Book Of Uppercase Letters (Kumon Workbooks) by Kumon Publishing...
Overview These Kumon workbooks are designed to help children develop pencil-control while learning the letters of the alphabet. There are two different consumable workbooks, one dedicated to learning uppercase letters and the other to lowercase letters. Many children can recite the alphabet at a young age; these workbooks will build on that foundation to help them learn to recognize and write each uppercase and lowercase letter as well. In these books, letters are grouped by similar strokes. Before being introduced to each letter group, children practice tracing the necessary strokes. These books start off with pages of straight lines, both up and down and left to right. After completing these activity pages, children are introduced to the uppercase and lowercase letters they can create with those strokes: L/l, T/t, H/h, I/i, F/f and E/e. The book progresses through the more difficult strokes of slanted and curved lines until children can write the entire alphabet. The correct strokes for each letter are numbered to show children how to form the letters properly; and children progress from tracing on thick dotted lines to writing the letter on their own. After students complete the 80 fun tracing pages, you can reward them with the certificate of completion in the back.
Publishers Description Kumon workbooks are based on the "Kumon Method," an educational philosophy that aims at unlocking the full learning potential of each individual child. The Kumon Method introduces learning concepts in an incremental, step-by-step approach, allowing children to master new skills easily and without anxiety or frustration. As a result, children gain confidence in their abilities and are motivated to learn on their own.

Reviews - What do customers think about My First Book Of Uppercase Letters (Kumon Workbooks)?
Daughter Loves it Sep 4, 2007
This book was great for starting my daughter out with writing skills. My wife and I blindly assumed that we should start with the letters in her name (R) but the book has the kids starting out with straight lines (T, H, E, etc...). That makes a lot more sense. My daughter looks forward to working on her letters.
One watchout: I was told that most parents teach their kids to spell there names in all caps. However, I'm told this is very hard for teachers to correct once the kids start school.
Only reservation that I have about the book is that I'm guessing I will to need to buy several of them since the pages are single use.
Kumon does it again. Mar 3, 2007
I've bought several Kumon books for my 3 yo daughter, this being the lastest. The layout is wonderful. It groups letters together by shape and pattern instead of order, moving from simple to complex. It offers many variations of the same skills and keeps my daughter's interest. I've never ask her if she wants to work in the book, she picks it up periodically and works in it as long as she wants. She effortlessly learned how to write L, H, T, I, E and F.
Preschool Writing Feb 22, 2007
My daughter is 4, and just started preschool. She loves the workbook. It teaches her to make different lines before she started the letters,which helped her make them correctly. Great for beginners.
We love Kumon! Jan 11, 2007
My girls love to do their workbooks! They are learning incredibly fast - and the Kumon books are colorful, engaging - and easy to understand! I would highly recommend the entire series.
Great introduction to writing uppercase letters! Oct 30, 2006
I really like the straight forward and fun approach this book uses to help the student learn to write uppercase letters. This allows learning to write to be fun instead of boring. A + book.
