My oldest daughter is at the brink of learning how to read and spell, though I don’t believe her generation will need to know how to write. Someone told me that they no longer teach cursive in school which is simply c-c-c-razy. I give this little Atsuyo et Akiko name bracelet to both boys and girls as gifts as they’re gender neutral and fun for all. If they don’t want to sport their name, they can pick their favorite word to wear instead. And the little star and heart beads will remind them of their favorite screen icons.
