"You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives."

IT'S DIFFERENT THAN TAROT!
So you want to learn how to read the Lenormand Deck? If you have searched for how-to books, you may have found that it can be difficult to find resources in English.
HERE is a blog explaining some of the differences between Tarot and the Lenormand.
Below is a list to get you started on your Lenormand-learning journey. I'll update this page as resources continue to become available, and as I continue to discover them myself. Feel free to contact me with your suggestions if you've found good resources I've not listed here.
Do note that many books and resources have different card reading systems. Take what you like, leave what doesn't fit you. I tend to like to stick to the traditional system as much as possible (as I continue to learn), which is quite different than how a tarot card is read. You need to pick what fits you.
LENORMAND STARTER TIPS:
If you don't have a deck (or if you have one and want a faster set up for a Grand Tableau spread, see Melissa Hill's Grand Tableau widget (online reading generator).
Below is a sample of Melissa Hill (Sassy Sibyl)'s Lenormand 101 Class mentioned above (HIGHLY recommended!).
