Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Visit Africa and Asia and study life on the Savannas. Next, circle the globe and draw and write about temperate grassland animals, like the anteater of South America and the pronghorn of North America. Then study the mountains and deserts of the world. Learn to draw the continents, too! 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

My mother challenged her students and expected the most from everyone in her class. I was a bright seven-year-old, but I remember joining the class mid-year, working on math and thinking, "These kids are smart . . . this is hard . . . but it's so much fun here," then getting back to work with renewed resolve. Everyone's attitude in the classroom was positive -- we were there to learn! The reality, however, was we began each day drawing pictures together. Every morning, each child in the class -- bright or slow to learn, English-speaking or struggling with the language, artistic or non-artistic -- looked on their desk at a picture and could say with pride, "Look what I made!" Drawing instruction made success the main ingredient of my mother's classroom. -- Kim Stitzer

It is simple yet creates a good, clear picture when we finish drawing.

The handwriting section is excellent as well, since the book emphasizes handwriting as art - thereby motivating kids to write as well as they draw.

My daughter (9 years old) loves to draw, and this book offered her some excellent tips.

As a homeschooling mother of 3, I can honestly say I've never found a drawing instructional book that worked like this one does! The step-by-step instructions make it so easy to produce a quality drawing that after my son completed his first one, he signed his name and wrote "really!" under it because he didn't think anyone else in the family would believe that he drew it!

The handwriting section is excellent as well, since the book emphasizes handwriting as art - thereby motivating kids to write as well as they draw. I've known about and used this series of books for many years and continue to be tickled pink! Try them out - I know you will be as pleased as we have been.

I love this series and have every one. I teach English language learners and these are useful resources for delivering the various content area curricula at a readable level. I set these up as learning centers for when I need the kids to be able to work independently so that I can work with others. When they finish the whole book we bind their pages and make a book they can read to me or to each other. Wonderful stuff!

I purchased these for my children years ago and was delighted at the quality of work they produced following the simple instructions. Now I'm a grandmother and I use these books to created personal cards to my grandchildren. I am delighted at how well I can draw using these simple instructions and if you get all the books, you will have lots of material to create your own scenes. A must for any homeschooling family who needs a simple, quality art program.

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.

My daughter (9 years old) loves to draw, and this book offered her some excellent tips. She has spent many hours reading and copying the pictures from this book. Highly recommend it.
