  • I have found you wonderful uppercase and lowercase alphabet tracing letters from a-z with animals but have not found when I can click to print them.

        • Hm, not sure. I just checked and there was no issue. Perhaps download and save onto your computer before printing. Sometimes glitches in the internet can cause printing errors if it is printing from the web hosted version.
