An exercise book is a notebook that is used to record written work or to practice writing. It is often used in schools by students to practice their handwriting, to take notes, or to complete assignments. Exercise books can be found in a variety of sizes and colors, and may have lined or unlined pages. Some exercise books have a hard cover, while others have a soft cover. The term "lovely handprint blue" might refer to the color of the cover of the exercise book, which could be a light blue color with a design or pattern of handprints on it.
