My 4 year old son likes to 'write' on his own. BUT, he does not enjoy learning to do it the proper way and practicing. I think this book is useful in our situation because it really breaks down how the letters are made. It makes writing them simple, and it does not overload the student with a large quantity of work. This is a great resource for beginning writers. It takes the pain out of learning to write letters. I recommend for beginning writers!
