This is the second edition of the published "Left Hand Writing, An Art 101 Book" with modified the Neat font and newly added Dance font and new line-art figures for tracing practices. The modified Neat font has more left-handed friendly letter structures and the Dance font opens children's eyes to creative and artistic thinking. This book is for left-handed children to learn and to practice handwriting. Unlike the traditional ineffective and boring practices of simply tracing letters after letters, this book uses line arts that are much more fun to practice with. The content of this book has letter structures for the fundamentals of writing a letter and emphasizes line art, short stories, numbers and math, and riddles. It's a fun book to work with. The thought process is to first establish the foundation of the letter structures and an aesthetic mindset, and then let children lead themselves to their own legible and artistic writing style. It's well-known that mindset and motor skills determine how a pen or pencil is handled. Given the intuitiveness and creativity of left-handed children, they will gradually grasp and quickly master the pen and pencil through tracing with this book. Tracing requires the precision pen or pencil movements controlled by fingers. Scientists have pointed out that left-handed people have a right mind, meaning the motivation is primarily connected to the right hemisphere of the brain, indicating highly intuitive and creative mind capabilities. Besides, left-handed people tend to process the information faster as per an Australian study showed in 2006. 10% of Americans are left-handed, including Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Zuckerberg, Julia Roberts, Bruce Willis, Oprah Winfrey, Robert De Niro, Albert Einstein, and David Rockefeller, just to name a few. Among the last 16 elected presidents, 5 of them are left-handed, 9 are right-handed, and 2 are ambidextrous. The proportion of left-handed presidents is much higher than the proportion of lefties in the United States. That probably means something, don't you think? Like an unpolished diamond, left-handed children are gifted creators. Training and practice will jump-start their sleeping mind and trigger the unleashing hidden genius. This book is one of the tools will do the trick.
