Very easy to follow.

She is very good but she has always struggled with animals never liking what she drew herself (even though it was better than I could ever do!)

If you are looking for an easy and non-specific drawing book about animals, this is the one. It has a wide range of them, from birds to insects, from wild felines to cute pets and farm animals. I would say this book is a great starting point for anyone who is interested in drawing but doesn't know any techniques or doesn't feel capable - yet - of drawing animals instantly. It is perfect for beginners because it does not use hard techniques, such as shading, and with it you are able to discover which kinds of animals you would like to draw more - and then you can go for "Draw 50 Birds" or "Draw 50 Cats", which are two examples that, comparing to this one, are more specific and therefore more challenging books. "Draw 50 Animals" uses the step-by-step method and is very easy to follow. You start with simple lines and shapes, and little by little you turn them into the animal which you thought you would never be able to draw. The result is really amazing, and a great self-esteem increaser for beginners (at least for me it was!). This book is sure to please anyone who uses it and anyone who sees the result of using it!

Awesome illustrations and easy to follow step by step instructions that allow even the beginner artist to draw all the pictures. My 9 year old sone received it for Christmas and loves it.

I purchased this book for a 13-year-old who likes animals and who previously took a vague interest in drawing. In the month since I presented it, not a week has gone by but she's calling me over to see the drawings she's creating with the help of this book. The book's teaching method is very easy to understand, and putting it together with a sketch pad and the proper pencils made it a great gift; not to mention that the child's sketches are greatly improved. And even more importantly, she's learning and enjoying something NOT related to a computer; an ipod, or a television set. Even if she stops drawing tomorrow, I would still feel this book was a good investment.

I have fond childhood memories of Lee J. Ames's "Draw 50..." series of books. They were my favorite books at the public library, and I used to spent many hours following along with the drawings of elephants, horse, airplanes, tanks, and other things.

If your child demonstrates an interest in drawing, I wholeheartedly recommend this book and others in the series, like The Draw 50 Way: How to Draw Cats, Puppies, Horses, Buildings, Birds, Aliens, Boats, Trains and Everything Else Under the Sun and Draw 50 Famous Cartoons: The Step-by-Step Way to Draw Your Favorite Cartoon Characters (Books for Young Readers). There's sure to be something he or she likes.

Some of the techniques I learned subconsciously from here as a young boy include roughly hewing out shapes and proportions, building more complex shapes from simpler ones, making drawings in perspective and giving them the appearance of three-dimensionality and volume. These are all fundamental skills that developing artists need to learn and master.

The steps-by-step illustrations are easy to follow, with nothing to read so these books are suitable for children all ages and languages (and adults too). This wonderful series should be a part of every child's life... or anyone young and old who simply wants to learn to draw better.

This book has a lot of animals to draw in very visual step by step directions. It was worth the money.

This book was purchased for my 9 year old grandson who loves to draw, & was spending a week with us during the summer. He's had books similar to this in the past, but he said that this was especially helpful & easy to follow. He looked forward to drawing a different animal each day, & really had fun with it. I would highly recommend this book to encourage children to follow the directions & be creative as well.

My daughter is 9 and loves to draw. This is a great product to teach her a lot of simple animal drawings she can do on her own. I would state that this is a beginner level drawing book. The book covers a variety of animals and does a good job with the basic format.
