colourful, simple and appealing to kids. but the cons: to start with it doesn't teach basic print. letters t, l, i, m, u, n, a, d, and h teach children to write "with a flick", much more appropriate for children to learn as a next step towards linked-up writing after learning to print, than as a first step. all the other letters don't include this 'flick' for some reason. also there are inconsistencies throughout the set. some books teach a curly 'k', others straight. some teach a curly 'y' and other a straight one, for example. when the whole point of buying these books is to get kids on the right foot for writing early, this set should be avoided until they sort these issues out.
