Needless to say I found this out after I asked Christina (see below) about fonts she used. Bless her for getting back with me so quickly. I have used Young Reader font for many documents in my class but the upper case letters aren't formed correctly. I'm so particular about what I use that it was driving me crazy to find something better.
I emailed Christina from Bunting, Books and Bainbridge and asked her about a font she used. She is so wonderful and shared her handwriting book with me that included a font very similar to D'Nealian. Even better she is having a HUGE giveaway celebrating her 2nd year blog-a-versary. Lots and lots of units have been donated so you could win a big haul. Visit her blog by clicking below or on the links highlighted above.
I hope this easy little font tip is something new you can use. Enjoy!!
