Category Description for Draw-Write-Now:

These are unusual books, combining art instruction with handwriting practice, and incorporating more than a little history and science instruction along the way. Based on a successful formula created by a now 75-year-old former teacher to inspire her students, these inviting books might become your child's favorite part of the school day! They are non-consumable, as your child will do the actual art work and writing on separate paper. Each book is divided into three themes (see below) with a total of 21 lessons. In the spirit of Drawing with Children, most of the lessons begin with seeing the targeted objects as basic shapes and lines. In each lesson, a colorful picture shows the author's model artwork, with neatly penned text on ruled lines underneath. Step-by-step drawing instruction for the main object in the picture is contained on the facing page. Usually, this begins with basic shape(s), then details are added a little at a time. After you introduce the subject of the lesson, your child follows these directions (with help, if needed) to reproduce the subject. Then, a similar or original background and details are added to the student's picture. After this is done, the accompanying text is copied. (Although text is shown in manuscript, you might want to have older children practice cursive.) Text is informational and in short sentences; the author believes this is more motivational and useful than forming isolated letters. It seems to me that, after carefully creating such beautiful artwork, children will be very careful to use their neatest and best writing underneath! After the handwriting is finished, your child can color the picture with crayons, colored pencils, or felt tips. Additional lesson-specific drawing tips and suggestions are offered in a Teaching Tips section at the end of the book. Some additional ideas and help for increasing art awareness or new techniques are also found at the end of each themed unit. Each lesson includes a related question to promote thinking and discussion. Answers to each are also provided at the end of each unit, along with a suggested book to read that will expand on the topic. If you incorporate this literature, each theme could become a complete unit study! We would recommend using Blank Top writing paper or My Illustrated Story Journals (the latter would be perfect if you plan to extend your study and need more writing space, since each journal could contain 12 lessons with an additional lined page for recording more information).

I was looking for a draw and write style book to keep writing fun, but also to really teach how to draw. When I found this it was more than perfect. The drawings aren't too simplistic like others I've seen and it truly encourages creativity with filling in the background and it seems to be filled with facts and further learning recommendations. It's bright and colorful to keep my kids interested. I'm so happy to stumble across this series.

I borrowed this from a friend to look at before I purchased. It's quality material! There are so many neat social studies curriculum connections that I ordered the whole set. My 6 and 8 year old sons each tried a drawing and were able to follow the instructions and complete the drawing to their satisfaction. Looking forward to using it as fun and educational independent work.

Beautiful and inspiring drawing books! We love how simple the steps are in the instructions for drawing each picture and how charmingly they turn out. Also love the informative text the child can copy and how nature and history are worked into a fun drawing lesson. Highly recommend!
Elisabeth M on Jul 25, 2020
Practicing handwriting doesn't sound like much fun to kids but, with these books the kids are having fun & don't really notice they are doing school work.
Bethany O on Jul 7, 2020
My daughter, who only wants to draw and be creative can now do copy work and recite history in addition to drawing. She wants to do more pages than i assign so that's always a win that she is enjoying it.

My younger brothers used these in the 90s with my mother's homeschool, I used them with my oldest children & now we need to replace them for my younger children. Love this series. Learn, enjoy.

I homeschool three children, and I'm always on the search for excellent, non-consumable and interdisciplinary teaching materials to use. A friend told me about the Draw, Write, Now curriculum. It seems to check all the boxes! I'm excited to try it.

This set of books was recommended to go along with an American Girl history curriculum we're just starting this school year. Hoping it will help my daughter with her interest in drawing.
Jodi M on Sep 11, 2019
This seems like is should encourage my children who love to draw to do copywork regularly (hoping with less arguing since it will be required if they want to do the drawing lessons) in effort to improve their handwriting skills.

I heard about them from fellow homeschoolers. They said their children enjoyed writing so much more with the drawing along side it.

We are purchasing this item at the recommendation of my son's occupational therapist. He has a fine motor delay and he needs to work on his visual motor coordination as well as his handwriting. This product will help with both.

I am looking for this set in cursive?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The one I recieved is in print, but I have my children copy the sentences using cursive and that has worked well for us.
Do the students need to complete these books in order?
A shopper on Jan 21, 2021
BEST ANSWER: All books are at the same level. You can work through them as you like.

Beautiful, functional, informative books!
I bought these to be a staple in Daily Five work my two boys, ages 6 and 8, do every day. They are beautifully published with thick glossy pages. The drawings, information, and instructions are interesting to my sons and easy to follow. The handwriting sentences are clearly written with correct letter formation; my 8-year-old copies all four sentences and my 6-year-old copies two for each picture. My 4-year-old can't wait until she is old enough to do these, too. Definitely worth the money for us!

My daughter who is 5 almost 6 is in love with these books! She is in live with art and was so excited some of these tie in with her history. In her words when I asked how she feels about them “happy, I love it!”

Highly recommended for handwriting and art
Our 8 year is working through this set and our almost 6 year old started it for first grade this fall. The older enjoys it and it has certainly boosted his confidence in drawing and helped his imagination reach the paper with less hesitation and more enjoyment. The younger has taken very quickly to the first book. We break down the lesson, one per week: Day 1) in pencil sketching pictures. Day 2) write text in pencil. Day 3) color the sketches. Day 4) trace over text with rainbow colors! Day 5) outline drawings in felt tip pen.

It’s what I’d hoped
My sister had this set many years ago as a child. She delighted in it and learned to draw well through the years. I think this will help my children do the same, and help them grow in confidence that they can be capable in all things. I like the penmanship aspect, too.
