  2. 2. <ul><li>Back in the time when I was learning to read and write, apparently it was taking me longer than other kids to get the hang of it. </li></ul><ul><li>So I had to do some special exercises to improve my writing skills. And among them there was one using a method called My Magic Book. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Mi Libro Mágico (My Magic Book) is an exercise book with tracing paper pages laid over writing models. Kids will write over and over letters to improve their writting skills. </li></ul><ul><li>So I thought the same could be used to improve drawing skills for those of us that need a little more training. </li></ul>Source: http://www.noriega.com.mx/
