This board features manuscript print form of writing (simple ball and stick) beautifully engraved into wood. The subtle directional arrows guide the child intuitively to learn the right formation of letters.
The grooves are smooth and big enough for little fingers to fit completely. It also comes with 2 wooden "pencils" (to trace with, it won't really write) for little older kids who are getting ready for holding and writing using writing instruments.
The board is made of buttery white maple and finished with linseed oil.
