Copybooks are one of my favorite things about homeschooling! I am so happy to be reviewing these products from Homeschooling Down Under! I am homeschooling a kindergarten-aged child and a middle school-aged child. Technically, the one in middle school is past the copybook stage, but I still assign them to her once a week to keep her mindful of her handwriting skills. She is delighted whenever we get new material, and she always enjoys the topics presented.

These copybooks are in a downloadable PDF format and can be purchased directly from the website for $9.95 apiece. They are available in Manuscript Print, Italics Print, Manuscript Cursive, and Italics Cursive. Australian and American spelling versions are the same.

Garden Verse is in Italics Cursive. It contains some nice poems. I was pleasantly surprised to find one of my favorites from my childhood: "I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me." Beatrix Potter is in Italics Print and is perfect for my little one. It includes "The Story of Miss Moppet," The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit," "Cecily Parsley's Nursery Rhymes," and "Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes." I love the Beatrix Potter illustrations! Aesop's Fables is in Italics Cursive. It contains 37 Aesop classics. The illustrations are wonderful! Mother Goose is also in Italics Cursive. There are 34 favorites here that are so familiar to any child whose parents regularly read to him or her.

These copybooks are delightful, and I highly recommend them for all homeschoolers. What a fun way to practice your penmanship!
