Default One more HWOT question

I've decided on HWOT for my 1st grader, but I have a question for my 4 yo.

Please understand -- I am NOT trying to push her academically. She is very developed in her fine motor skills.

She's writing letters and words on her own as it is and reading a bit, too -- all things she picked up by being a tag-along student.

I want to get her a HWOT workbook -- mostly to give her the option of something to do "like sis" when dd1 is doing handwriting. The preschool level book is mostly pre-writing -- since she already knows her letters, should I go ahead and get her the K book?

Opinions?

I would get her the K book . We started DS on that when he was 4 and he was very ready for it and did great - it spends half the book on capital letters which are good for starting to learn.

Worst case scenario, you get the K book and realize it's too hard so you get the green PreK book instead and save the K for next year .
