"A Trip to the Zoo" A-Z Slant Print Penmanship


Children love A Trip to the Zoo!

Your child will love copying text about favorite zoo animals and other zoo features in this Slant Print* copy work book, with an average of about 30 words per page.

Here's what you get in this book:

  • 4 zoo-animal mazes to help your young child develop writing readiness
  • 3 alphabet practice pages to help your child learn and practice the individual lower-case and upper-case letters
  • 26 illustrated copy-work pages, A to Z, with a different zoo animal or feature for each letter of the alphabet to give your child practice in writing all of the letters in a sentence context, with special emphasis on that letter of the alphabet in the text
  • 27 simple, good-quality zoo-animal coloring pages to use as Art and/or as reward pages for a job well done and/or as part of a notebook for a unit study on animals or zoos

This book makes great transitional handwriting practice for late first through third grades before going on to cursive handwriting.  It is also a great fancy handwriting practice for older kids (grades 4-6) who can perfect this simple style of fancy lettering to use on anything that requires it.

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 already learned to print but has not yet learned cursive and for an older child who wants to learn and practice this fancy handwriting style.

Please note — this book is also available in manuscript print writing: “A Trip to the Zoo” A-Z Manuscript Penmanship.  You can buy both versions of this book for a substantial discount (over 30% off the already discounted price) by buying the BUNDLE: A Trip to the Zoo Early Penmanship Bundle.

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.

* Slant Print is a writing format that transitions from manuscript to cursive.  It is quite beautiful and can be used for fancy writing on cards or gift labels, as well as for helping your child to make the transition from manuscript to cursive handwriting.

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.
