See our honest review of Memoria Press Penmanship & Copybooks.

After looking long and hard for high-quality copybooks, Leigh & Cheryl Lowe finally decided to create their own! Their Copybooks are three-in-one wonders that include memory passages, copybook exercises, and drawing pages. They teach penmanship, basic grammar, spelling, literature, accuracy, attention to detail, and memorization—all through the simple skill of copying. They have selected Scripture from the King James Bible (chosen for its poetic verse) and classic children's poems such as those by Robert Louis Stevenson which describe the world in charming detail.

Not only do we want our littlest ones to form beautiful letters, we want them to copy beautiful words. If the goal is to take full advantage of each precious moment in education, why waste copybook time on meaningless letters and words when your student can practice penmanship on beautiful on beautiful scripture and poetry?

These Copybooks are simple, clean, and focused on the task at hand. You won't find meaningless color illustrations strewn throughout their pages. Instead, they provide space for the students to draw their own pictures to help them remember and visualize the glorious passages. In years to come you will cherish these journals of your child's work.

The Copybook Series by Leigh & Cheryl Lowe includes three books, each with more than thirty-five passages, for beginning writers in Kindergarten-2nd grade. The first book starts with slightly larger margins that decrease over the three years. Students begin tracing, then move to copying directly under modeled words. Eventually students are asked to copy passages from the left page onto lines on the right page. Emphasizing care and accuracy, students learn how to be patient and take pleasure in getting it right.
