Why Handwriting Matters for Kids

Engage their Brains

Handwriting improves memory and a child's attention span and also helps to develop their ability to focus. Children’s handwriting books are an important tool to develop these skills that are necessary throughout their education journey.

Nurture their Creativity

When children are writing by hand, their creative ideas will flow. Practicing lines and drawing shapes, numbers and pictures helps to build up a child's mind and hand muscles. You’ll be amazed at what they can do!

Excel in the Classroom

Most schools are still using written communication to educate their students. Students who can write neatly and quickly are shown to complete assignments faster and with more accuracy. As students progress to note-taking, a learn to write cursive book will help the speed at which they can write.

Special Features

Clever Eli is designed to be ‘kid proof’ with many great features that set it apart from other children’s handwriting books and dot to dot activity books.

All-in-OneSchool Aged & PreschoolKids Handwriting Book

Clever Eli is one of the best handwriting books for kids on the market with so many fun activities for all ages in the one reusable handwriting practice book. It’s a multi-sensory number and letter print and cursive writing notebook that starts with the basics of pen strokes and how to write letters. Our handwriting books for kindergarten students then progresses to neater, more controlled cursive writing and Sight Words as children advance in their education.


Making neat lines that are straight, curved and of a consistent size is essential for good handwriting. Our writing book for kindergarten and school aged children lets them practice these pen strokes, again and again, to help ensure their success at writing letters and numbers.

Shapes and Drawings

Not all handwriting books for toddlers to school-aged children contain pages dedicated to line tracing shapes and drawings. This keeps handwriting practice for kids fun and engaging. It is also important because until they learn all the letters, and how to spell, children typically draw to express their creativity.

Alphabet and Numbers

Naturally, a handwriting workbook contains number and letter tracing practice. However, Clever Eli includes manuscript letters as well so that kids who aren't quite ready to tackle a harder handwriting cursive workbook can practice printing before learning to write.

Sight Words

The Sight Words page is unique to this beginning handwriting workbook and useful for kids as they begin learning to spell English words. Because of this, Clever Eli is one of the best handwriting books for 1st grade students.

Print and Cursive Fonts

Special grooves embossed on good quality cardboard paper make both print cursive handwriting practice feel much easier. Unlike dot to dot tracing books, our indented writing book guides the child's hand. Through our print and cursive practice book children will improve their fine motor skills, writing skills, and develop more confidence in their writing ability.

What Parents Say

A Happy Child Makes Happy Parents.

Best ages to learn handwriting for kids

Clever Eli has combined your child’s full growth experience into one fun book!  Our reusable handwriting book for kids is perfect for toddlers and loads of fun for older children as well!


Many schools introduce handwriting books for 3rd grade students who are usually between 7 and 9 years old. By this stage, most young ones have practiced pen control, line tracing and developed the motor skills for writing letters with loops and strokes to make each letter flow. Cursive handwriting books can help children this age develop their skills even further.

Kindergarten/1st grade

Many parents and a growing number of early education facilities are seeing the benefits of using a handwriting practice workbook to help kindergarten and 1st grade students learn to trace letters and numbers, and improve pen control.


Writing books for toddlers and the slightly more advanced handwriting books for preschoolers are just as important to help early learners practice letter formation by tracing letters, learning to trace numbers and build confidence at this young age.

It’s important for your child to have fun with simple support to strengthen and develop control over their hand muscles in readiness of learning to write. That’s what makes Clever Eli the best handwriting book for kids of all ages!
