Draw Write Now Review

Draw Write Now books
Now we have a Giveaway TOO!!!  
I really believe art is an important part of childhood! It's sad that so many schools no longer offer art classes. Kids need to learn to be creative! My daughter Lael is an amazing artist. When she was growing up, we were lucky enough to have an amazing art teacher that encouraged her and helped her really blossom!  Unfortunately, so many kids don't have a Mrs. Marks in their lives. For those kids I have the next best thing!!  Draw-Write-Now!!
Draw Write Now books 2

The Draw-Write-Now set starts with the introduction to the subject. For instance, book two has an entire section on Christopher Columbus. From the boats, to the people and sailing to the new land.

Everything is included in this book starting with handwriting tips!!
Practice Handwriting Carefully
1. Sit up straight.
2. Hold your pencil correctly.
3. Use the paper guidelines.
4. Form each letter carefully.
5. Space the words evenly.
6. Practice daily.

The short stories that are meant to be copied by your child to help with handwriting skills. There are teaching tips for adults.  There is a page of facts about each subject.

Next is the DRAW part of the book........ the step by step instructions to draw everything from Christoper Columbus to The Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria!!  Not just  EASY to FOLLOW instructions!!  Seriously!! Step by STEP instructions!!  You will not ever hear your child (or their NaNa) say I can't draw that!!  Because we CAN!!  Yes, EVEN ME!!! WOOO HOOO!!!

Emma and I opened book one and got to work making a tractor. Why the tractor??  Well, because Emma REALLY wanted to draw the tractor!  (Hey, I'm NaNa... my job is spoilin'!)
