Each of the eight Draw Write Now books are divided into three units and offer 21 lessons. The lessons are presented on two pages showing a colorful drawing, four sentences, and step-by-step drawing instructions. The four sentences are shown in manuscript writing, but the lessons can be used with cursive, D'Nealian, modern manuscript, Italic—any style! The authors recommend using the Startwrite handwriting software in order to customize lessons.
