“Yesterday my 8yo daughter composed this beautiful, little poem. It got me wondering where the ability and know-how had come from, because I really don’t believe it has come from me as I have done very little poetry with my kids. She has a natural talent in language and creativity, and has also been the one to spend the most time of all my children with your copywork book 1. She loves to read out her copywork passages and she ‘plays’ with the words and phrases.
Thank you so much for putting your time, energy and effort into these resources – I’m so grateful for the high quality literature found in the workbooks and the tangible inspiration they have been to this daughter, in particular!
Today, I printed off Workbook 2 - because now she is really keen to learn cursive writing – and I look forward to the time my daughter can have to soak up more inspiration from some of the best Australian writers.

“By the way, though I'm sure you know it already - your copybook materials are tremendous. They have saved me mountains of time searching for suitable copybook material, particularly for my high school students. My older children, aged 12 and 14, have thoroughly enjoyed the content.“ Jennifer
The copywork books that I purchased from you are used every day by my 7, 11 and 13 year olds! It is so nice to have copywork readily available to use, especially on those days where I can't seem to get organized (too many days!) The passages that you have chosen are excellent. Kind Regards, Jacqui
“We began using the copybooks yesterday – and even my 12 darling son said he really liked them. Not only was his writing neater, he really enjoyed reading what he was writing and reading the extra’s I copied from your website. He can’t wait to see what he gets today. I am very impressed with both the copybooks and Wonderland of Nature book and discovery pages and shall be recommending them to everyone I see.
Thanks for putting together such fabulous Australian resources. I will be very interested in any of your future resources.” Sandi
