This large-print manuscript penmanship book with its richly colored, lavish illustrations on the story of Jesus’ birth is a delightful way for kids to practice their handwriting while focusing on Christmas.
We created this book as a way to draw the family together during the Christmas season. Our kids loved to make Christmas last, from the first of December to the new year.
Why not combine Christmas celebration and handwriting practice as your kids learn the words to multiple verses of favorite Christmas carols by tracing or copying them in manuscript printing?
For each of 14 Christmas carols, we provide each verse of each carol in large-size (32-point) dotted manuscript printing to trace, plus the same verse in solid print for kids to copy using the 10 decorated lined pages, in 6 line sizes, at the back of the book. Includes 2 bonus carols in solid print for copying. (These do include 2 of the verses each to trace.)
We also include coloring pages depicting scenes from the story of the birth of Jesus, as well as pictures to color of families celebrating Christmas around the world. You are allowed to print out the pages for all family members in your same household year after year.
We suggest putting the finished carol pages in a notebook and using it to sing the Christmas carols, either just as a family or with guests. Let this book be a jump off point to instill in your children a love for singing and a special place in your family schedule for singing Christmas carols every year at Christmas time.
You can also purchase our Christmas music CD, Christmas Carols, Sweet and Clear, which includes 10 of the carols that are in this book, for your children to listen to while they do the handwriting practice on these pages, or to provide the accompaniment as they sing along with it.
This book is for those of us who still love the old Christmas carols, with their focus on Jesus’ nativity story, and want to pass them on to our children and make them a part of our Christmas traditions.
This book is a combination of beautifully illustrated Christmas carols, with all their rich verses, plus coloring pictures to go with each carol. Plus the card shaped color pictures can be decorated and embellished with shiny star stickers, shimmer paint, glitter glue, and other embellishments (as shown in our Christmas card-making book, only these are all on the subject of the nativity story. We also give you a set of 10 decorated copy-work pages in 6 different line sizes.
