This is a brilliant book. It focuses on writing each letter of the alphabet and also links every letter to a word. The book starts off with practicing tracing over different patterns to get the reader used to using the blue wipe-clean pen that comes included with it. There are different coloured dots to act as a guide for each line pattern. Then the book goes through the alphabet. A is for apple. There is the written sentence as well as a colourful picture and then lots of lower case letters to trace over. The letters have directional arrows and dots to help guide you. The book itself is great for building children's confidence in writing or using a pen and generally learning their letters. The wipe clean pen is perfect because it gives children the freedom to make mistakes, rub out and try again and again. Younger children will need a little help with reading the text but there isn't much. The illustrations are colourful and very cute and the whole book is lots of fun.

A fun introduction to writing letters. My daughter has really enjoyed using this book and practicing the shapes needed to form letters before moving on to the letters themselves. She loves the fact that she can run out the pen and this has been great preparation for starting school

This is a nice way to introduce and practice writing lower case letters. Letters are introduced alphabetically, with space to practice tracing them and a couple of words starting with the letter. The wipe clean marker means that they can practice the letters again and again. It also makes writing the letters fun for the child. There are also tips on how to hold the pen at the start, which is really nice. The only issue I can see with this book is that many schools don't introduce the letters in alphabetical order, so it might be confusing to some children. But it's a great introduction to make letter writing fun.

This is a fantastic wipe clean book! My little girl loves it and asks almost everyday to practice her writing skills. I love that it wipes clean so well and she can keep practicing her skills.

Great for helping your child when they first start to write. Space to practice writing each letter of the alphabet over dots showing child exactly how to do each letter. Also like that gives an example with a picture of a word beginning with each letter and these are words children will have heard of, for example zip for z. Fab that it's wipe clean so can be used over & over.

As soon as this book arrived, my daughter opened it and started completing the activities. She absolutely loved it and sat for an hour quietly practicing her writing. She is starting reception next week and this book will be a great help to her learning how to write. The pen is good quality and the ability to wipe out any mistakes so they can try again, is really helpful.

Very good and helpful book to help teach children how to write.  I  much prefer using wipe clean books (and luckily a pen with eraser is included!) than using printed out worksheets.

My son really enjoys this activity book! And it has definitely help him learn how to write.

I liked this book because it started off practising patterns which is the first thing children should do before trying to copy out letters which some people don't realise. Once mastered the patterns moved in though the alphabet doing different letters, doing the easier ones  first and going back to the harder ones. My daughter loved it as she got to wipe it all clean once she had finished and start all over again.

This first writing wipe clean book is a great resource for getting the kids to practice their writing and shape formation. Each A4 page has 2 letters covered and each letter has a row of dotted outlines of each letter to practice drawing. Each page is also accompanied by nice colourful images associated with the letters on the page. The book also comes with a dry wipe pen needed and a nice touch the pen lid comes complete with a dry wipe eraser on the end, making it easy to rub away the markings and start all over. My kids love doing their drawing in this book and that can only be a good thing!

A couple of small improvements that could be made include the paper could be a little thicker, with repeated use the pages start to look worn, i also found the ink in the pen left an inky residue on the pages even when wiped both with the eraser provided and a tissue. Finally the pen comes attached to the front in a plastic case which pokes through a whole and glued on the inside of the cover. This is fine, however when removing the pen for the first time the way it had been glued cased the cover to rip, there was then a glue residue which caused the first page to stick to this. You obviously have to remove this plastic in order to use the pages of the book. I think this is something that needs improving on this product. If this is done then this `is a great book for learning to write our letters.

Perfect as an aid for letter writing practice and with it been wipe clean can be used again and again ! The bright pages was loved by Ella and she has often got it to practice without any encouragement only issue we've found is if the pen is not wiped off quickly after use it can stain the page blue
