With bright illustrations and friendly animal characters, this lively book is a perfect way for children to develop their fine motor skills. The fun activities encourage pen control, and there are lines, loops, swirls and trails to trace or copy, all shapes children will need to make when they come to write their first letters. Titles in the increasingly popular Early Years series are perfect for children aged 3 to 5 years. They support the 'Early Years Foundation Stage' framework that is used in nurseries and schools. A fold-out page at the back of the book includes notes for grown-ups, tips on how to achieve the correct pen hold and ideas for lines and patterns to draw. Durable wipe-clean pages and special pen allow children to complete the activities again and again until they feel confident.
