Draw Write Now Books
Draw Write Now Books contain collections of beginning drawing lessons and text for practicing handwriting. These are consumable books that you can use over and over again by writing and drawing with your own paper, or by purchasing a blank workbook.
The Draw Write Now books are numbered 1 through 8, but may be used in any order. The numbers—Book 1, Book 2, Book 3, etc.—do NOT relate to grade level. Draw Write Now, Book 1 has the easiest lessons. If a child is confident with their drawing skills, they may start in any of the books.
