I love looking at my children's French books...all carefully chosen by daddy-o. The illustrations are especially lovely and well-executed and the handwriting...oh the handwriting...is so lovely and perfectly perfect. It seems like most people in France write in a similar way...it makes me wonder if a certain style of penmanship is taught in schools? Regardless, it is beautiful and something I've always admired.
