Before we can walk, we must learn how to crawl. Well, same thing goes for writing. Before we can learn to write, we must first get a grasp on the fundamentals. Basic motor function is needed as a precursor to writing. Things such as throwing a ball, squeezing play dough, coloring, etc. are good examples to help gauge your child’s motor function capabilities. After motor function comes line work. Our alphabet is composed of straight and curved lines, so before we jump to writing our ABCs, in this book your child will first practice drawing straight, curved, and squiggly lines.
