Yep, that was the thread. We have since started New American Cursive. I'm not crazy about how the letters are introduced (in alphabetical order). I kind of think it would be easier to introduce them in groups that are made in a similar manner. But I do prefer the font of NAC over any of the other programs, and it is specifically geared toward young children (i.e. 5-6 years). Specifically, I like that the F, T, Q, and Z and made in manuscript - so as to avoid confusion between the very similar F & T, and because most people never made the Q and Z in cursive again after learning them in 3rd grade. And as they say, the Z is more fun to make in manuscript for young children.
FWIW, it doesn't seem to bother my dd at all that the letters are introduced in alphabetical order. Her handwriting has improved dramatically in the last 2 months since we began NAC.
