Which style is best?

We can’t tell you which handwriting style will work best for your child; we don’t know him or her. But here are some questions to help you determine the answer for your situation.

  1. Is it easier for my child to write straight up and down or at a slant?

    If writing at a slant is difficult for your child at this stage, you may want to go with Zaner Bloser.

    (By the way, if any writing is difficult for your child at this stage, don’t force it. You can teach your child the correct letter formations when he is young without ever putting pencil to paper. Draw letters in sand or in a pan of raw rice or on a chalkboard or white board. You can even draw letters in the air. If he learns the letter shapes gently and easily now, using his large motor muscles, it will be easier for him to write the letters correctly later on paper, once he is ready for those fine-motor skills. Our Delightful Handwriting course is designed around this concept.)

  2. Will my child become frustrated learning two styles of handwriting—print and cursive—or will it be easier if cursive isn’t so different from printing?

    If your child will enjoy the fact that he or she can write in two very different styles—straight up and down for printing, and slanted and fancy for cursive—then Zaner Bloser may work best. With Zaner Bloser, all 26 letters change shape between manuscript and cursive, plus the slant of all the letters changes.

    If your child will be frustrated if he has to change how he writes several letters when switching to cursive, you may want to use D’Nealian. With D’Nealian, only 13 letters change shape between manuscript and cursive, and the slant does not change at all.

  3. Will this handwriting style complement or confuse my child’s ability to recognize and read words?

    You don’t often see words printed in D’Nealian on the pages of beginning readers’ books. If you think your child will become confused trying to recognize letters and words that look quite different on a printed page than the letters he is learning to write, you may want to teach him the straight up and down Zaner Bloser.

  4. Which handwriting style are you the most comfortable teaching to your child?

    Remember, you will be the one demonstrating the strokes and letters and coaching your child in his handwriting lessons. So think through which style will work best for you and your child, make your choice, and move forward with confidence.

All of our handwriting books are available in both Zaner Bloser and D’Nealian. So no matter which style you choose, you can easily use all of those resources.

FRB American Cursive is an extremely technically complex cursive font family that consists of 50+ fonts. It is in the style of a 'textbook hand', a font family used primarily for education. However, it can be used anywhere a cursive is called for.

I call it an 'American' cursive not out of any sense of patriotism, but out of a sense of the history of textbook hands: this font most heavily takes its design inspiration from Zaner–Bloser cursive. However, I also integrated elements of D'Nealian and Palmer Method. What this means is that FRB American Cursive is a traditional American textbook hand which puts a lot of emphasis on the idea that the writer should lift their hand from the page as seldom as possible. Using OpenType Layout, I made it so each glyph has at least 3 versions. Unlike many textbook hands, even educational ones, my font connects capital letters and lowercase letters. It connects some capital letters with each other where possible as well.

Some styles of FRB American Cursive rely on new font technologies that may not work on all legacy systems. Especially the color fonts may not be supported on all systems. However, FRB American Cursive is a standard OpenType font family. OpenType support is absolutely mandatory mandatory for this font: there is no expectation of proper display without OpenType Layout support. The best tested target is HarfBuzz.
