Animals of North America to Copy in Manuscript


Parents tell us that their children beg to do penmanship with our appealing graphics and fascinating animal facts, coloring pages, and activities.

This exciting and very special penmanship book includes a paragraph to copy in manuscript printing of 26 different North American animals, A-Z, plus coloring pages for each animal, from beavers and moose to flying squirrels and muskoxen, with an average of about 80 words per page.  But that's not all.  We also give you the tracks of most of the animals, plus hidden tracks for your child to find on the coloring pages, as well as fun activity pages at the end of the book, including animal tracks memory cards and quizzes, a word search puzzle, a crossword puzzle, and word games.

The copywork in this book uses traditional manuscript printing, with a half page (up to ten lines) of copywork.  It is suitable for advanced first graders who are confident readers, mid- to late second graders, and any third grader.  In mid-third grade, many teachers teach slant print and then cursive writing.  However, because even we as adults still use manuscript printing to fill out forms and for other tasks, this book is also suitable for grades 4-8 remedial handwriting (printing) practice.

Buy this book once, and you can use it for any member of your immediate household indefinitely.  That means you can use it for both a younger child who has just learned to print and for an older child who needs more practice in neatness.

The professional handwriting font set used in our penmanship books is used by public schools across the U.S.  This book is reproducible for all students living in the same home as the book’s owner.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
