Handwriting Practice Book - Pink Landscape Lined 9-6-9 pk of 10
This handwriting practice book is based on a design by the Dutch Waldorf teacher Els Gottgens.
The book contains lined pages which are divided into three bars; light green 9mm upper and lower bars, light pink 6mm middle bar.
The coloured bars are deliberately emphasised to encourage the child to apply their willpower to the specifically marked upper and lower areas. Later when practice is done without the help of the bars, balanced handwriting is produced.

Why Rounded Corners?
Have you noticed our lesson books have rounded corners. There is a natural aesthetic in curves and roundness, and a very practical aspect as well. Put simply, round corners last the test of children's desks and bags, and round lines are what we find in nature, with nature being our best teacher. Find out more ...
Why Three Staples?
We have been making and working with Lesson books for over 35 years. Our staples are not normal staples you can buy off the shelf - each staple is cut as it staples the book, to the exact correct length each book requires. Along with the three staples, our specially measured staples give your lesson book strength and longevity. We use 3 staples, simply because this is what hardwearing Lesson Books need.

What is Onion Skin?
Onion skin paper is an almost translucent paper that is crisp to the touch. Thin and lightweight, it is also strong and tough.
Our Lesson Books are available with or without Onion Skin page dividers. The Onion Skin page divider will protect your artwork and written work.
Did you know Onion Skin paper makes good tracing paper? And it can also be used for origami, folding or craft paper. If you have Onion Skin dividers in your lesson books that you don't need to protect your work - cut them out gently and reuse in your next art or craft project!
