*Draw Write Now* was created for the primary grades, ages five to nine. The lessons are used in preschools, multi-age classes, homeschools and upper elementary classes. Four year-olds and 12 year-olds enjoy doing the lessons together. They have received numerous awards.

*Draw Write Now* books are NOT workbooks. The series becomes a part of your home or classroom library, to be used many times. Children draw and write on their own paper or may draw and write in the *Draw Write Now Workbook** *(a blank book.)

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.
