Mother Goose Classic Copywork E-book Review by Courtney Larson

Homeschooling Downunder

Mother Goose Classic Copywork is a downloadable black and white e-book that provides copywork from well-known nursery rhymes, and most are from Mother Goose. Homeschooling Downunder has four books available in its copywork series, and Mother Goose Classic Copywork is the second book in the series. Each of the books is available in italics print, italics cursive, manuscript print, and manuscript cursive. I received the manuscript print version (recommended for ages 7-8) and the manuscript cursive version (recommended for ages 8-10) to review.

The two versions I received are identical except for the font. They contain 34 nursery rhymes for copywork, including "Little Boy Blue," "Rain, Rain, Go Away," and "Hickory Dickory Dock." There are illustrations throughout. The cursive version begins with a solid font for tracing, while the print version has hollow letters for tracing. After a handful of pages like this, the format changes to a blank set of lines in between each line on the page so that the student is able to copy the words directly below the model.

Mother Goose Classic Copywork is a fairly basic copywork book. The layout is simple, and it gets the job done. It's an economical choice since you can print multiple copies (using only black ink) for your family, so it's worth taking a look at Mother Goose Classic Copywork.
