My son was crying through handwriting.  My search for cursive curriculum kept coming with ineffective options that just made the whining worse. My reluctant writer is also a bookworm so I bought one based on a book series he liked, but sadly the moment I opened that workbook, it was obvious it had not been written by a teacher, or anyone with an educational background. I knew I could do better, and Learning with Literature was born.
My years of teaching in public, private, and homeschool have taught me that all true learning happens when there is meaning attached. My love of art and literature taught me the most meaningful places in the world are inside of book.  Books are the backbone of all learning in our home.

 I used my education degree and graphic design experience to create a book that combined my child's beloved books with intentional scaffolding of handwriting skills. I started in the world my reluctant writer bookworm loves best, Narnia! And guess what, it worked! Once he began using Learning Cursive in Narnia, he began ASKING for handwriting practice each day! 

 Once I saw how successful these books could be, I wanted to share them with everyone!

Meaning Matters

​A student, child or adult, learns best when the content is connected to something meaningful in their own lives.  Learning with Literature Workbooks take the whining out of handwriting practice with meaningful words and quotes from beloved children's literature. 

Designed for elementary students just learning cursive, middle schoolers who need practice, or anyone who wants to improve their handwriting. Print workbooks also available for younger students!
