Even young budding artists can learn to draw with this simple and colorful book. Easy, step-by-step instruction and vivid crayon and marker illustrations are enticing to young children. This was a great tool for my 6-year-old daughter who loves to draw, as she could easily complete the drawings in the book. I highly recommend this one for beginners!

The wonderful , colorful illustrations inspire children in an easy step by step non-intimidating way. Even the 5th graders at the school I teach art at love this book and so do I.

This book is great! Very cute to look at, easy to follow, and the colorful, fun pictures are wonderful. We have this for my son, but all of his friends (girls and boys, 6 years old) want to draw everything on every page and they can do it very well. Steps are simple to master for ages as young as 4, and the book helps build confidence because the kids can really draw what is shown. Variations are easy too. We love it. Great gift idea!

My almost 6 year old daughter enjoys this book. It's fairly basic, and not a large book (about 30 pages). It has the following people that can be drawn:

workman, angel, giant, pirate, queen/king, ballerina, soccer player, scuba diver, astronaut, parachutist, skier, ice skater, cowboy, horse and rider, and a page for making faces with different emotions (sad, angry, etc.)

I like this book because it shows the characters in a couple of different positions and with a background, so it gives the child an idea for a drawing that they can build on. Plus it's a little more advanced than children's drawings, but not in a different world like many of the how-to-draw books, so it fits in well with what an eight-year-old might draw naturally. There are eleven two page spreads: workman, angel, giant, pirate, queen and king, ballerina, soccer player, scuba diver, astronaut, parachutist, skier, ice skater and cowboy, then two pages of faces and three for a horse and rider.

This book says it will teach you to draw people, and it will. The quality of the drawing however, leaves something to be desired. The drawings taught are not even close to realistic, and the techniques/practices are the type that will just teach your child bad habits if they ever want to pursue drawing more seriously. This book teaches you to draw stereotypically "kid style" drawings/people. Incredibly disappointed overall.

Format: Paperback
This is a great beginners book for preschool age children. It's also great for teaching yourself and your child. I'm not a great drawer and I loved this book. I can do this and so can you. There are easy to follow step by step instructions along with colorful pictures of what it is supposed to look like, using basic shapes. They can draw a workman, an angel, a giant, a pirate, a queen, a ballerina, a soccer player, a scuba diver, an astronaut, a parachutist, a skier, an ice skater, different faces and more. So, there's lots for them to practice and learn to draw. A must have for will be artists. You will want to post all their creations.

My daughter loves to draw - I got some of these "I can Draw" books along with some others... this series is definitely best for her age (5) since the pictures are simple enough for her to do. The other books we bought were for older children that were too advanced for her to enjoy.
