Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Circle the globe and draw the animals that inhabit Earth’s tropical forests in Asia, Africa and South America. Then draw and write about the forest animals living in the northern temperate forests of the world. Next, take a peek down under at the animals of the forests of Australia. The series won the Teachers' Choice Award, is a regular recipient of Practical Homeschooling Reader Awards, and was selected one of the top new products at NSSEA Ed Expo 2001.

From the Author

This book has one of my favorite lessons -- drawing a simple map of the world. It begins with an introduction to the Prime Meridian and Equator, and then drawing each continent using simple ovals. While developing a mental image of the map, the child also develops a comprehension of Earth's basic geography. Later, when a child hears about Africa in the news or in discussion, they can imagine their simple world map and relate the location of Africa to the location of their home. -- Kim Stitzer

My third grader's cursive is O.K., but his printing is horrible. I've tried to get him to do traditional handwriting books, like Handwriting Without Tears and Getty-Dubay, but he hates it. He loves animals and loves to draw, so I thought I'd give this a try.

Well, not only does he like it, but so does his younger brother and sister (2nd and Kindy). You start off with a drawing lesson (this book has a lot of animals and then some map stuff), then work on drawing a background, coloring it in, and then copy a paragraph about the animal. (At least that's the order they recommend.) In our house, we start with the paragraph first some days....and the drawing first. I do fine that my son wants to really concentrate on his writing as to not mess up his drawing, although some times it works better to have the drawing bit be the "carrot."

You do not need separate books for each child, because the drawing/writing is done on your own paper anyway. Ideally you'd want paper that had the writing lines at the bottom and a space for drawing at the top, but we've done well with normal printer paper that I make lines on at the bottom for writing.

Anyone who has ever picked up this series knows how great it is for kids! My son was so proud of himself last week when he was able to learn how to draw an elephant for the first time!! He didn't think the rest of the family would believe he had been the artist of the picture now hanging on our fridge. Of course the handwriting review is great, but I use these books as my art curriculum. I appreciate the way they break drawing down into steps (lines and curves) that make sense.

I love these books, and all three of my kids have loved them too. Enjoy!

I love this series - it teaches many aspects of drawing, and builds the children's skills as it progresses. This book has interesting scenes to draw, and informative narrations to add to the drawings. We are very pleased with this purchase!

We have two kids, one (age 6) who loves to write and draw and who carries a pen and little writing pad around with her wherever she goes, and one (age 9) who loathes to even pick up a pencil or crayon. We have been using the first three books for approximately six months and they both LOVE them. At the behest of the children, I ordered books 4-8 from various merchants. Each book in the 8-book series has a variety of high-interest images. Each section is a two-page spread with the drawing instruction on one page, a completed scene on the next accompanied by four lines of large-print text below. The series begins with simple drawings and simple text in book one and gradually increases to more complex drawings and verbiage while maintaining the four-line format. However, I don't use the books in order. Each morning, I put all eight books on the table and the children (one boy, one girl) each choose from which book they will draw dependent upon their interest and their perceived ability. My 9-year-old has become noticeably more confident in his ability to draw and his penmanship has improved dramatically. And this was a boy who cried every time he had to write ANYTHING and never even liked to color. He doesn't cry about writing any more and he looks forward to drawing every morning now. This series has been a lovely way to help build confidence in our reluctant boy, who has even taped a few of his pictures on his wall(!) and has helped to hone the ability of our daughter who is just naturally more oriented toward writing and drawing. I can't recommend this series of books highly enough.
