Kumon Workbooks introduce basic learning skills to children aged 2 through 6. Concepts are introduced in a step-by-step manner that allows the child to master each in turn without getting frustrated. This sequel to My First Book of Uppercase Letters encourages children to begin with lowercase letters that have simple strokes such as l, t, and i and gradually moves on to letters containing diagonal lines and curves. Through a series of connect-the-dots and tracing exercises, children become familiar with the shapes of letters naturally. Although this unique approach to the alphabet may seem roundabout, learning to write letters effortlessly will speed a child's recognition of the alphabet later. 40 activities designed for ages 4-6. Paperback, 80 pages, measures 8-1/4 x 11-3/4".
