My First Book of Lowercase Letters

(140 customer reviews)

This sequel to My First Book of UPPERCASE LETTERS encourages children to begin with lowercase letters that have simple strokes such as l, t, and i and gradually moves on to letters containing diagonal lines and curves. Through a series of connect-the-dots and tracing exercises, children become familiar with the shapes of letters naturally. Although this unique approach to the alphabet may seem roundabout, learning to write letters effortlessly will speed a child’s recognition of the alphabet later.

    Best Preschool Introductory Lowercase Letters Workbook!The Kumon My First Book of Lowercase Letters is meant to be used after the Kumon Uppercase Letters workbook and is the best introductory preschool workbook for learning to write lowercase letters. The letters are not taught in alphabetical order, but this should not be a problem if you are going to use Kumon, Handwriting Without Tears and/or Zaner-Bloser handwriting workbooks. I love how big the letters are on every page and the review of letters learned. This workbook is not meant to perfect handwriting in a single workbook, and you will need to select other workbooks to build upon this one. The Kumon books are a great intro workbook to use before starting a more formal program. We used this book along with the uppercase letters workbook before starting the Handwriting Without Tears program. This workbook also reinforces how to hold a pencil correctly. Ages: The four to six years old age range is appropriate for this workbook although my kids completed this workbook at four years old. Multiple Children: A workbook is needed for each child.

    really well doneI bought four Kumon workbooks for my 5 year old. This will be our first year homeschooling and I am totally thrilled. With all of the workbooks there are about sixteen full color pages and after that they are printed in two-color. They are all very well organized, incremental and simply laid out. The illustrations are great – they make the pages interesting but they don’t get in the way of the work. Some children might not like how similar every page is to the next, however for my child this will be absolutely perfect! She likes being confident in what she is supposed to do and enjoys doing the same (or similar) thing over and over.The one thing about this particular book that I don’t like is that I don’t think it has quite enough review work. It goes like this: two pages of a new letter for three letters, then two pages of review for those three letters. The ten pages of a-z review at the end. I think I’ll photocopy the review pages to have her do over.I love the book and am confident that it will work really well.

    Great book to help teach kids to write lowercase letters.Great book to help teach kids letters. I have actually used this book several times with my 8 year old. He writes letters, but sometimes can be a little sloppy. When he starts to get sloppy we bought another set of upper and lowercase letters and make him start over. They are quick easy books. Starts off with straight lines, then goes into 3 letters, then review of the letters in the start of a word with a picture of that word. Kumon makes good products and this is another good one.

  4. J Jones

    5 year old grandson with special needs used Kumon to prepare for Kindergarten. Wonderful!very sequential – teaches letters in the order in which they will be easiest to learn to write. My grandson, 5, with special needs finished it and other Kumon books to ready him for Kindergarten. We waited an extra year for him to start Kindergarten and prepared him with Kumon materials to ready him for Kindergarten. Each time he finishes a Kumon book, he gets to either put the certificate on my wall or take it home to mom and dad. I also give him his choice of a small prize for each workbook he completes. But the greatest prize he gets is the good feeling that he can learn. My prize is seeing the pride in his face and his increased calmness.

    Kumon books lay an excellent foundationGreat foundation skills. For the parents who complain that there isn’t enough individulal letter practice, please know that they will get all of the practice that they need in “writing words”. The Kumon curriculum is excellent and I am continuously amazed at how well the curriculum suits my son. Things that I iniitally think “this is too easy for him” prove to be just right. i can see him developing solid foundational skills page by page. I feel that this curriculim is filling the gaps left by the school system.

  6. MVEI

    Perfect for Prek or KinderMy 4 year old loves this book. I bought her a couple of Kumon books and they’ve been a big help, especially now since we’re out of school due to COVID 19.

  7. Angela

    Better than the Upper Case BookUnlike the uppercase book which is just pre writing skills then basic letter practiceThis book uses practice time to introduce words and beginning soundsI wish the upper case I bought had dual skills as well

  8. Legally Blonde

    Great book, nice picturesGreat book, nice pictures. Helps you have a guide to teach your little ones. I would recommend that you buy a pad of lined paper for your child to practice the letter you are working on since you only review them a handful of times. It does not have enough pages for your child to repeatedly practice so they learn the letter and work on penmanship. Other than that it’s a great book.

  9. Butch Flarida

    I like it – veru helpful for my daughter- just wish it was more eye catchingI like the book and it is very helpful I just think the blandness of it does nothing to attract my daughter to want to use iteven incorporating sounds might help? in lieu of more vibrant pictures, or adding a texture to cover?Just my two cents as my daughter is very much the kind of child who is drawn to ‘loud’ colors and thingsIt serves its purpose its just not very funI think its better for older children maybe? My daughter is almost 5…

  10. Donnie

    Excellent practice outside of school.I like this whole series. It’s great practice for my kindergartner.

  11. Peter Parker

    Good buy for kindergartenersNice big book for learning lowercase letters.

  12. carey knecht

    Great productMy 18 month old loved these now he knows his alphabet!! And some words that start with that letter!

  13. R Fitz

    Great!My 3 year old loves this. I love that the pages are back to back, so I can rip one page out and have it be one full lesson (front and back). A lot of other books are side-to-side lessons, so you almost need to leave all the pages in the book while your toddler works on them, which is difficult for a 3 year old to handle. It’s much easier to have pages that are ripped out and on a flat surface.

  14. Nitin Bhandari

    Big tracing letters are good for visual learningExactly what I was looking for !!! My little one is 4 and he is starting to read ,this book is quite engaging and motivates kids to read . Big tracing letters are good for visual learning !!best part is , I don’t have to sit and tell what to do he does it himself 😉

  15. FranS18

    Great homeschooling workbook!This was a great book for my son for homeschooling last year! It helped him with learning how lowercase letters and how to write them!

    Homeschool CurriculumHomeschooling Irish Twins for Kindergarten. This is part of our Language Arts curriculum for the Fall. We do 2 pages a day, the days we stay home to homeschool. The girls would actually like to do more in one sitting, but this is just for the Fall and then we will have another workbook for the spring.

  17. M. Schouten

    My kindergartener who just turned six just finished this lowercase …My kindergartener who just turned six just finished this lowercase letter workbook while on vacation doing a few pages after breakfast each day. His report card said he needed to master his small letters. In two weeks he had! He needed the structure of Kumon to do so. N Both my husband and myself were impressed by his progress.

  18. Keros

    works for meI bought this to start getting my 4 year old son ready for kindergarten because the teachers told me he should be able to recognize lowercase letters. He is still working on his fine motor skills and has difficulty writing the letters independently though he can trace them somewhat okay. Is it me or are all 4 year olds supposed to be able to know the entire alphabet in lowercase and uppercase.

  19. ally

    Great quality but not sufficient for kindergartenersThis workbook is made of quality paper which allows for multiple erasures, which is good because multiple erasures will be needed due to a lack of practice area. It is a letter tracing book, with only the final page (p 80) dedicated to freehand letter writing (each lowercase letter is written once, and beside it there is a box where the letter is copied and written). Overall, great book for beginners, under 5’s, but not suited for kindergarteners, who need to practice writing out the letters. Also, as with all Kumon workbooks, the pages cannot be torn out, which makes writing on the left side of the workbook extremely difficult.

    Perfect for a 4 yoIt has helped my granddaughter to be ahead of her classmates.

  21. HippieMama

    Always a go to book for my preschool kidsIt starts off with just lines so your child can practice just holding a pencil and increasing ther dexterity . It’s nice to have something like this instead of having to look up worksheets online. Each book comes with a certificate of completion which really motivated my younger children .

    Kumon gets it right!For early learners this is one of the best tools to use with parents.

  24. Foxface

    Great!It’s a colorful book for my 4 year to practice his lowercase letters. I was a bit surprised to see that the alphabets are not in the alphabetical order. I don’t know if this was done on purpose or not, but I expected and prefer if the letters were in alphabetical order. Other than that, it’s a great book to use as a extra fun practice.

  25. Cheryl Ernst

    Kumon booksI ordered several Kumon books for my 3 year old grandson. I am lucky enough to be his childcare provider while my son and his wife work. I was looking for something more than the “Big Book” stuff. These books are excellent. I scanned them onto my computer so that he can practice the exercises he needs a little more work on. His 4 year old brother, who is in preschool also enjoys doing some of the exercises. Great books.

  26. J.Richardson

    Maybe a little tough for 4 yr oldWe are a homeschool family and this is a great book for seat work for the younger when I’m doing one-on-one with the older. However, plan on being close by if you have a 4-5 year old. It’s not a do-it-yourself book. Well, it could be if you don’t mind the order in which pages get finished or what gets randomly colored or filled in :).

  27. ckmommy

    Love!Like all Kumon books we’ve ordered, this one is a major hit with our son. He has special needs and struggles with writing. He just loves these books, and they help to build his confidence! Great quality!

  28. Meena

    Its definitely usefulMy 31/2 year old loves kumon books . He is done with the upper case letters and he can write all of them on his own now. So we moved onto lower case and he likes these books . (dont forget to tip the kid with lots of appriciation and stickers .!!!! ) . The certifiate at the end makes him feel that he achieved something and that also makes him go. I would definetely recommend this book to the parents .

  29. Kristi K-R

    Minimalist and appropriate.Kumon’s entire approach is a winning one, for me. The fact that there is a minimal amount of stuff for the children to focus on (unlike most workbooks, which are full of embellishments, graphics, and other frivolous nonsense), puts Kumon a cut above the rest. Clear, instructional, and helpful. I haven’t seen a better set of learning materials, yet.

  30. GGMcMurray

    Tracing books, great for kidsMy granddaughters loves doing these. These are great to teach kids out to correctly write a letter. Great for little ones to do while older siblings do homework.

  31. Sarah Davis

    Best Lowercase Writting BookMy son starting learning how to write lowercase letters in this book when he was 3 almost 4 years old. This book is perfect for teaching children how to write clear lowercase letters and gives them the confidence they need to excel in future writing endeavors. If you’re looking for a good writing workbook then look no further. Buy this book! It’s focused solely on writing, just what my child needs!

    Not as good as the other booksThis workbook isnt as fun as th eother Kumon books we have gotten. Usually they are very bright and visual with fun activities. This one is just letter after letter with nothing much entertaining. Usually my son absolutely enjoys kumon workbooks and finishes them on his own. Not this one. Disappointing. Needs more pictures!!

    useless as practiceThis workbook was useless for both writing and reading enrichment. Each letter gets two pages, but hardly any room for writing practice. (See pictures.) For reading support, some of the letters have images that cause confusion by not keeping the sound consistent. Ex. ill, igloo, itch, and then ink.

    Great book hared to openI wish that these books were spiral bound so that they would lay flat while my son learns to write. Seems like a basic oversight in the design. I have to spend about 5 minutes prepping the book, breaking the spine before he can use it. Otherwise it’s a great book.

    Mastery of Lowercase Letters Clearly VisableI’m a homeschooling mom and I’ve used this book and the book of Uppercase letters on 2 of my 4 children. I plan on using it on the younger 2 as well when they get old enough. I start this book after they’ve finished the first book on Uppercase (about age 4 1/2) and it really is a great tool to use. It teaches them how to write lowercase letters and also gives them the opportunity to re-examine letter sounds. We normally do one letter a day and then, on the review pages, we do the first side one day and then the second side of that review page the second day. When they are done with the book, I feel both of my children have had a command of lowercase letters. I highly recommend it.

  101. Warren J. Dew

    The first stage of preparation for readingAt first glance, this book appears to be a simple workbook to help learn to draw lowercase letters. It is that, but used according to the instructions, it’s much more than that. The book also introduces the concept of letters being parts of words, and critically, it teaches the association of the letters with their sounds, the first step toward being able to sound out words and read.The workbook introduces the lowercase letters one at a time, in an order from simplest to most difficult to draw. Thus it starts with a letter that requires only a single straight line – l – and ends with the letters that involve combination of curves with straight lines, like d. For my two sons, starting with such an easy letter helped create enthusiasm for the book; the fact that the first word in the book is “lion” probably didn’t hurt either.Each letter, when introduced, is introduced with two words beginning with that letter. The words are accompanied by pictures, so the child can usually guess the words without knowing how to recognize the letters. The child is supposed to “read” each of the words – in cases where the picture is ambiguous, an adult may need to read it and let the child repeat it – and then the child traces the letter five times while saying the sound of the letter. Saying the sound – not the name – of the letter, while writing it within a visual tracing guide, provides an association between the visual, audible, and proprioceptive value of the letter that is extremely helpful in learning reading and writing skills later on.On the back of the page for each letter are four words that begin with that letter, each word appearing twice. The child is to “read” the words, then say the sound of the letter as it is traced at the beginning of each of the eight word appearances. This gives the child the experience of writing letters as parts of words and further reinforces the association between the letter and its sound.After every third letter – the first three being l, t, and i, for example – there is a review page that includes tracing of each of the three letters four more times by itself, then on the back of that page, tracing each letter at the beginning of two words that begin with that letter. The individual letter pages and review pages make up a total of 70 pages.After all the letters have been completed in this way, the letters are traced in alphabetical order in two ways. First, they are traced nine at a time – for example, a through i – twice, on a total of 6 pages. Then they are traced with the entire alphabet on a single page, three times, with progressively lighter tracing guides, making 3 more pages. Finally, there is a page where the entire alphabet of letters are written in squares with no tracing guides, being copied from a small printed letter beside each square rather than being traced. In the end, there are a total of 80 workbook pages, and each letter is traced or written 25 times.Before starting this book, the child should have some fine motor skill – say, being able to draw a recognizable stick figure of a human – and perhaps be starting to learn the alphabet. Having already memorized the alphabet is nice but not necessary. If the child has trouble drawing a stick figure, but can use a pencil grip, it may be better to start with the previous book in the Kumon preschool English sequence, 

    My First Book Of Uppercase Letters (Kumon Workbooks)

    . If the child cannot yet draw within a half inch wide guide, the best starting point may be the first two books in the Kumon preschool series, 

    My First Book Of Tracing (Kumon Workbooks)


    My Book of Amazing Tracing (Kumon Workbooks)

    .The next book in the sequence after this lowercase letters book is 

    My Book of Alphabet Games

    , which provides additional practice on both uppercase and lowercase letters, reinforces alphabetical order, and reinforces the association between the uppercase and lowercase forms of each letter. That book also addresses the point made in several other reviews that many children could benefit from more repetition than is in this lowercase letters book. Alternatively, the child may skip directly to 

    My Book Of Rhyming Words (Kumon Workbooks)

    .My older son completed this book at age 5 the summer before kindergarten. By the end of the book he was able to form cute but highly legible letters without the tracing guides. For him, I skipped past the alphabet games book to the rhyming words book. That way he could start working on words and not just letters, in preparation for actual reading. After the rhyming words book and the subsequent rhyming words and phrases book, he could reliably sound out simple words and was ready to start learning to read. The down side was that he was not immediately clear on the differentiation between uppercase and lowercase letters, which took some time to learn.My younger son worked through this lowercase letters book when he was three. By the end of the book, he had mastered the sounds associated with lowercase letters, but was not yet able reliably to draw letters clearly. He proceeded to the alphabet games book, which gave him more practice drawing letters and mastering the lowercase and uppercase alphabet, but at the cost of some confusion between letter names and letter sounds. This confusion was largely corrected while working through the subsequent rhyming words and rhyming words and phrases books.As with all Kumon books, this book is self paced. You may have noticed that my younger son, at 3, was not in the recommended age range for this book of 4-6 years old. That is because he loudly voiced a desire for workbooks like his older siblings had when he was 2, so he got an age appropriate book to work on, the first book of tracing. He then worked though that and two additional workbooks in the series, and the lowercase letters book was next in line. His young age may have had something to do with his imperfect letter drawing, but he learned well the associations between letters and sounds, which was really the key foundational skill of this book for later reading.In summary, this workbook teaches how to write lowercase letters, and when the instructions are followed, also teaches sound and letter shape associations critical for later reading and writing. It is an integral part of the Kumon toddler and preschool sequence of workbooks. I strongly recommend this series to provide the foundation for strong reading and writing skills later on.

    Great Introduction to writing lettersThis book is a great introduction book to writing letters. The paper stock is good quality and can be erased so your child can use the page more than once. You can erase the book 4-5 times (I paid a neighbors child to erase the book) before you have to buy a new one. I love the book so much that I ordered another copy of the my daughter can do this book again as her letters still need some help. The book has 26 letter lessons and 14 review lessons. Each lesson is 2 pages and can be completed by my daughter in 3-4 minutes.

  105. Steve

    Kids love these books!I have young twins. One of them will grab these books and a crayon and traces & draws nearly an hour. He won’t even watch TV that long. He goes from front to back of the book and when he’s done, he starts at the front again. He doesn’t even care that he already has drawn on a page, he just traces again over and over. I have bought every book in the series.

  106. Katherine Wolter

    Awesome ResourcesThese books are by far the BEST tools I have ever used for my preschool children. It teaches work ethic because they are simple and the children can work on them on there own after giving them instructions once. This is specific to my children who can not read yet. We set the timer for 20 minutes and that is our ‘homework’ time for my 2 & 4 year old. They love it and I’m teaching them to work independantly.I can’t get enough of these books!

  107. Mother of all Battles

    Fun way to learn lower case lettersMy 4 year old son learned to write his capital letters last year, and he was ready to learn his lower case letters after starting preschool. He went through this book in 1 week. I never asked him to do his “fun book”. He just went to his table and worked on it whenever he felt like it. He had so much fun looking at the great pictures—he didn’t think of it as work. Now he just finished the Rhyming Words and Phrases book. Another great Kumon workbook! Highly recommend it!

  108. Beth A. Wilson

    great help for preparing for school!!!not only do i love this book, but my 5 year old LOVES it too! he thinks it is fun and is eager to practice. it is not only great for practicing writing the letters but also is a tool for learning the lowercase letters. a must have for kids getting ready for kindergarten!

    depends on what you want the book for.I was surprised to discover that the ONLY type of activity in this book is tracing letters and writing practice. My 4 3/4 year old needs some practice identifying lowercase letters, but isn’t really into writing yet. Other workbooks we have done (cheaper ones from the drugstore) break up writing with other activities for variety. We’ll save this one for later, until he’s ready for writing practice. The quality of the book is excellent though, it has nice paper and is colorful.

    Genial!! Letras imprenta !!!Genial! Para primer contacto con las letras y el abecedario esta genial. He contado muchas fotos porque me gustan muchos estos libros y la verdad que en ninguno hay fotos del interior y tampoco nadie las cuelga y es interesante saber cómo son para ver si son lo que unos está buscando y se acerca al nivel de tu niño. Se trata de hacer cada día dos paginas o más según el niño yo le hago más o menos pero sin que se agobie. En las primeras paginas empieza por cada letra del abecedario y por detrás ejemplos de palabras que empiezan con esa letra. Cada tres letras hacen una página conjunta de estas y la traerá también con ejemplos. Una vez ya se ha hecho todo el abecedario vuelven las plantillas de letra por letra con su página posterior de ejemplos. Cuando estás de acaban empieza el abecedario letra a letra en una misma página. Primero con puntitos y camino para reseguir, después solo con puntitos y finalmente con huecos para que el niño lo escriba solo con el ejemplo chiquitito al lado. Creo que está genial como primer libros para reconocer las letras, sus sonidos, etc… Siempre hay que tener en cuenta que el niño debe hacer estas paginas con la ayuda de un adulto para que vaya diciéndole los sonidos y poco a poco ya vaya siendo el niño quien los diga para así ir aprendiéndose todo el abecedario. Y sin mencionar que creo que es muy bonito… que en la última página del libro viene un diploma para que cuando el peque acabe el libro se lo entreguen. Genial no tengo ningún contra. Cada día 15 min es ideal 👌🏼.

    Daughter loved it!My 3-year-old flew through this workbook after finishing the Uppercase book. She loved it and would just do page after page with no supervision required (vs the Numbers 1-30 book, which I have to assist with). Her motor skills improved a lot and I love the progression of the Kumon books. I will never buy a different brand of workbook again, Kumon is vastly superior. I hate how other workbooks such as Brainquest teach letters, Kumon is much better. I also like that they practice saying the letter sounds and understand how they start words, it is a great way to get ready to read.

    Very inviting pages for little onesThe only unfortunate thing was, that my child decided to do it all in one sitting, when I wasn’t paying attention….Thus, we did not manage to achieve the aim, which was to learn the sound and name to each letter.Otherwise it could have worked with it’s colourful layout, tracing, writing and playful exercises.

    Bien para aprender el abecedario en inglésA mis hijos les gustan los libros de Kumon y este nos lo hemos usado para ir aprendiendo el abecedario en inglés. Me gusta particularmente por uno de mis hijos, al que la letra enlazada le resultaba más dificil, y esta al ser el modelo de imprenta se le ha dado mejor. El precio me parece muy bueno.

  133. David Toffer

    Great for home learningSimple kids book to encourage pen holding and writing technique, follows the Kumon philosophy of continuous and mind numbing repetition. Great for young minds who know no better.
