The Race (an inspiring story for left-handers) by Jan Nicholson
A new short story by Children's author Jan Hurst-Nicholson and illustrated by Vanessa Burger.

Vicky is left-handed and teased for being clumsy, but a visit from her Gran changes everything. Vicky’s Granddad has died and her Gran is coming for a visit. Vicky wants to cheer her up by embroidering a cushion as a gift, but Vicky is left-handed and she struggles to learn how to sew. She decides that winning a race in the school sports might be a better idea, but can she do it, especially when Graham threatens to spoil all her plans?

The story highlights some of the challenges faced by left-handers and how they can be overcome. At the end of the book is advice on how to help left-handers; how to tell if a child is left-handed; the correct way for a left-hander to hold a pencil and to slant the paper; famous left-handers; percentage of the population who are left-handed; career choices for left-handers and cultural issues for left-handers.

It was amazing for me to watch my son who had previously resisted my every attempt at getting him to write his letters. Today he sat with his Left Handed Writing book and markers and happily went through page after page. Because I'm not left-handed it's easy for me to forget the obstacles he faces, but I can see that I will likely be using your website in the future to provide left handed gear for my son.<
