"A Walk in the Woods" Cursive Copywork


This copy book of beautiful, picturesque writing set amidst illustrations of natural beauty will delight kids from 4th grade through 12th.

Full of word-picture scenes of the beautiful and interesting things a forest holds. Written by a homeschooling mother and daughter with the goal of giving students ample cursive practice of each letter in the alphabet. On its page each letter is repeated up to 42 times, but in sentences that are sensible yet charming enough kids will gladly do any page twice. Delightful text worth reading aloud as examples of alliteration, with breathtakingly beautiful coloring pages and a special section at the end of illustrated nature craft ideas to try.

Here is a sampling of a sentence or 2 from over half of the delightful stories kids get to copy in this book:

A Acorns scattered across the forest floor are destined to become great oak trees...
B Birds bless the forest with their ballads, bringing the beautiful gift of song...
C The chipmunk scampers away, scattering leaves, and cheats the hawk of an afternoon snack...
D ...They dine until satisfied. Then the deer detect danger. Suddenly, with a soft drum of hooves, they disappear into the woods...
F A shaft of light filters onto the forest floor through the firs. I find a frilly fern and finger its feathery leaf...
L Lacy leaves seem to laugh as they fall lightly to the forest floor....
M At midnight, the mice are awake, meandering amid the many leaves and mosses....
N Blind birdlings rest contentedly in a round nest in a branch high above the ground...
O Old oak trees spread their strong boughs across the forest canopy, groping for light...
P Picture-perfect pines among the peaks line the peaceful pathway...
R The brush by the path rustles, and several rascally raccoons burst forth from amidst the branches...
S In the sunlight glistens a sparkling forest stream...
V Vivid violets quivering in the breeze thrive in their quiet place...
W Wildflowers waving in the wind, whisper in the wilderness. Wisps of yellow petals break off and wander away in the wind...

This is the third book in a series of outdoors penmanship books that also includes A Backpacker’s Alphabet, spelling out the basics of backpacking from A to Z, A-Z Have a Wonderful Walk, telling how to make family walks exciting and varied, as well as the upcoming book Adventure Survival, giving students the basics of wilderness survival.

This product is so much more than just copywork. My daughter and I take the time 3 times a week to read the poetry together and discuss what we think the poet is trying to convey with their words. There is a bit of knowledge included for each alphabet [...]

I have a middle school boy who has very poor penmanship. He loves nature, and enjoys the informative paragraphs about various animals. In addition to the copy work, the detailed coloring pages are geared for older children and provide extra dexterity [...]

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.
