Megan Hirsch's How to Hold a Pencil ($8) is a visual guide to teaching tots the proper writing utensil technique. Packed with large photos and simple instructions, writing newbies will quickly learn to pinch their pencil and then support it with another finger. Diagrammed images show both correct and incorrect form, giving kids models to copy as they perfect their own grip. In a world where tykes are learning to type before they write, it's nice to know that your child will at least know how to hold their pencil when their technology fails them.
