My daughter was really excited about starting this book! The activities are all based around animals so they are learning facts at the same time as improving handwriting. My daughter enjoyed the activities as they are fun and like small games, it is nice to complete the sections one at a time as this means it is not too much to do. Would recommend for 5-7 year olds to improve handwriting.

My granddaughter loved this book
The activities are short enough to keep her attention and she loved the subject of animals.
As a Toppsta giveaway she loved the certificate and took great care with the writing exercises.
It is a colourful and informative book and even I learned a few things whilst we were completing the activities.
Highly recommend and ideal for 5 - 7 yr olds

This book is just fabulous (as is usually the case with Letts).  Lucas is unenthusiastic about English and writing so it will be brilliant to use during the school holidays and help him practice whilst not at school.  Filled with practical exercises, fab photos and interesting animal facts this book provides a fun way to learn and is a brilliant tool for parents to use at home.  Highly recommended.

A fantastic book that inspired even my normally reluctant son to have a go at the activities. 
The book is of great quality
As you would expect with a Letts product and is filled with various activities aimed at improving a child's English and handwriting skills. It has lovely bright photographs and lots of fun animal facts to keep the reader interested. Think we will be on the look out for some more in the range .

Another brilliant learning book by Letts Wild About series. We have a few of these for different subjects but the first for handwriting which is a field where our eldest child needs a lot of help with. This book has made learning fun and our son is actually enjoying practising to better his. The tasks are entertaining and the book is filled with interesting facts too.

We were sent this as a review copy, which is lovely for children to receive in the post. In addition, there is a wonderful winners certificate - that was a very welcome touch. 
The book itself is aimed at reluctant boys, who are less enthusiastic about writing. It provides short exercises in handwriting, illustrated with nature and fact files. To that end it is the next step on from a magazine but does not look like school work. It matches with KS1 objectives and you could easily do a little each day. My son did enjoy completing the book - high praise indeed! 
One note of caution is the age range of 5-7 years. There is such a disparity in abilities at this age, it may well be perfect, or way beneath their abilities. If the latter, suggest looking at the next step up in the series, for 7-9 year olds.

My son needs a lot of encouragement to do any sort of school work.  He is a mid-july baby, and he's been behind at school since he started, so we try to encourage him to catch up at home if he can.  We liked the activities in this book, they're not so demanding that the child instantly regrets starting, and they are able to take a breath from handwriting while they read the animal facts.  There are no stickers, something that my eldest son isn't driven by anyway, but I know my 4 year old would have been waiting for a sticker at the end of each page.
It's easy enough that they can work independently, but we tended to sit together so it felt more enjoyable for him to have my attention and time.

We haven't finished all the pages yet, but i've noticed a few mistakes, that although they aren't HUGE, shouldn't really have made it to print, which is why I have dropped a star. 

Overall, we like this book, and we do have a lot of this kind of work book. I trust Letts and think they support the curriculum really well.

My son didn't seem to keen to do this book. These sorts of books don't usually engage him as he prefers maths.  However, he did try it for quite a while and it seemed to engage him, but he wouldn't pick it up without encouragement.

The boy enjoyed the colourful format & the explorers log at the back where you could tick off what you had done. He was keen to complete it and it was laid out clearly and systematically. It was a good introduction to the new expectation for joining handwriting in key stage one and would probably suit a capable Year one child but it wasn't really geared up for extra practice for a Year Two child. The boy struggles with handwriting and there just wasn't enough space for practising each join before moving on to the next one. If you are looking for something to support a child who needs extra practice this isn't really it.
