What is it
The Mark Makers™ early writing programme has been created to enable children as young as 5 months to begin developing their basic writing skills, allowing an easier transition into more advanced school taught writing.
Four characters feature in the books, proudly displaying each specific mark through their design, shape and colour-
Lionel, a bright red soldier mark.
Archie, a multi coloured curved rainbow mark.
Ziggy, a green monster made of zig- zags
Swirlo a purple magic mark who loves circles!

What our experts think
The Mark Makers storybooks introduce children to early writing skills by showing the different shapes and marks needed to make letters and numbers. Our testers found the books colourful and eye-catching and easy to come back to again and again.
The children enjoyed following the shapes of the different characters with their fingers and interacting with the story by finding the different shapes. This is great for developing their dexterity and hand-eye coordination, needed for holding a pencil and building their early writing skills.
