And our verse:

“Journey afar,” he heard a voice calling,
“Joy awaits in a far-off land.
Jump over desert, jump over mountain,
Jumping Mouse, jump as high as you can.”
(verse from Enki Education)

I made the forest paths smaller, but not small enough for the whole verse.  As you can see, Atticus is still interspersing a lot of capital letters within the verse.  Watching him perform the copywork is pretty amazing.  It clearly challenges him in different ways.  I am glad he is still enjoying it!
