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).

Planning to use this as enrichment activities that each of my children can participate in on their level.

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.

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.

I was excited to be able to vary our history studies with art! It is a really fun way to learn/summarize history, practice handwriting, and draw! I purchased this set for the history books on America, but the books on animals, etc are frequently chosen by my kiddos, and they're nice too.
Stephanie R on Dec 15, 2017
I've had my eye on this set for a long time. We love to draw!!! My two oldest children are becoming more independent with their handwriting and just need lots of interesting things to copy. Hoping this will help.
Heidi D on Dec 13, 2017
I am a kindergarten teacher at a title one school, and my class loves the two books I do have in my writing center. They are so excited to write and are doing it independently too choosing what they want to draw and write about. It is my author and illustrator center and it is popular all day long.

I have a very reluctant writer. I felt that trying this child on drawing would motivate him more into working on his handwriting skills.

Cheaper than purchasing individually.
Jamila P on Jul 15, 2017
This series seems like an easy, and maybe even enjoyable!, way to practice both penmanship and learning to draw at the same time. This Mama needs to learn how to draw, too ;).
Jennifer L on Jun 12, 2017
We borrowed these titles in the past, for about 2 years I think, and my kids loved using them. They want their own copies.
Rebecca G on Mar 13, 2017
This was recommended through the American girls curriculum to add depth to the units.
renee k on Feb 25, 2017
so many of my friends have been talking about these books and they wish they had purchased them sooner. we are doing classical conversations and these are supposedly a huge help before they get to map drawing in Challenge A
katey s on Feb 3, 2017
I felt it was a great way to add structured art time each week to our school days.

I used these books when I homeschooled my children, then when I was teaching in the classroom, and now I'm ordering as a Christmas gift for my grandchildren! All children have loved them!

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.

Great books to teach drawing
My homeschooling friend has these books and I thought it was a very good book to teach drawing. The instructions are clear and each book has a theme, such as farm and native americans. So, after you draw a horse, you can add a barn and cows and chicken to complete your farm. My children love using these books to draw objects like animals, barn, and vehicles. I highly recommend these books.
