Hello Kitty – Starting to Write
My Review
This is a great introduction for little people learning how to write! It covers a wide range of activities throughout the book and children will grow in confidence holding and getting to grips with a pencil. Each page has dot-to-dots for your child to follow waves, zig-zags, lines, curves, all in preparation for learning to write letters. You will see as the book goes on that your child will gain better control over their pencils. The back section sees the introduction of dot-to-dot letters and these will be more tricky – but practice makes perfect.Read more >>>

Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she’s ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.

But there’s strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she’s done.
