When they were younger, I loved to read books to my girls. Now that they’re older, I love having them read to me. It’s so wonderful to see my girls’ love for books.

I was recently introduced to the Innovative Kids Now I’m Reading series and was really impressed with what they’ve come up with.


A proven step-by-step program that guides beginning readers from their first read-along books to the excitement of independent reading!


We received the “Read It Write It Draw It” books and was very impressed with the various activities included in them. I thought it was going to be a book about reading and writing basic words but it also included stickers that the girls could add to the story, pages to color, and a step-by-step guide on how to draw one of the characters.

Here’s how it works:

Read It – Have your child read the story

Write It – In the next section the exact same story is printed again with various words missing. In Level 1, the word are printed in a shaded color for younger kids to practice tracing the letters. In Level 2, the words are completely blank so older kids can practice their penmanship.

Draw It – In the third section, the same story was printed again with all the words intact. Here the girls able to add stickers to the illustrations and color in the scenes.

Finally, on the back cover was the “How-to Draw” a character section.

What I really liked about this book series is that it took various activities and included them all in one book. This was great for keeping the kids occupied and interested. In fact, when Kiana’s favorite television started she said she wanted to write instead.

Now that’s impressive!
