This new addition to Ladybird's I'm Ready early learning series gives young children plenty of practice in using a pencil correctly and helps to develop their fine motor skills - an essential early skill that leads to first writing. In First Pencil Practice, children can practise some brilliant first writing activities, including drawing straight, wavy and zig-zag lines and patterns, colouring and keeping within the lines. There is also specific help and advice for left-handed writers. The middle of the book contains pull-out pages contain fun extra activities to complete and keep that show how fun using your pencil can be! Design a birthday card, colour in a postcard, make your own monster and more! The perfect first writing book for children about to start school or in Reception, it is the ideal preparation for Ladybird's other I'm Ready to Write title, First Writing Practice.
