A MUST HAVE FOR PARENTS This book is fantastic. It explains so much and gives great tips for helping our kids grow up left handed as they were born to be - not forcing them to 'make do' in a generally right handed world. Highly recommended (01/12/2010) Stuart Dalgleish - Cambridgeshire
Totally essential This book should be in the professional library of every school and college and be in every household with a left handed member. It is user friendly and practical without resorting to stereotypes. It is also a useful introduction to the wider academic issues raised by left-handedness. (20/04/2009) Liz Haslam - Cheshire, UK
Fabulous book with really practical tips The best outcome for me was that it enabled me to have a great conversation with his new teacher to work out strategies to help him learn to write well - e.g. writing spelling lists on the right hand side of the page so that he can see the words as he copies them out. Simple but REALLY effective. (27/11/2013) -
Good but only for starters! Certainly should have got the book at the beginning as my child defined herself as a lefthander but now later on as have already done some research I pretty much knew it all!So recommendable for beginner righthanders getting to grips with it all! (05/10/2010) -
