I love this book. My 5-year old loves drawing and this is a book that he loves to use. He mostly just draws a flower for me. But it is easy to follow the pics in the book. It is definately for someone who loves to draw and can follow instructions. The book has Flower on the left page, and empty page on the right side. I wish that there was no blank page, as it leaves the opportunity for the kids to color in the book when I only want to use it as a resource book and not a coloring book.

I am artistic and love drawing with my kids. I really like all of Barbara Soloff Levy's books. She uses only a few, uncomplicated steps. My girls (7 & 5 years) can sit down with these books and follow the steps themselves.

I was looking for a more in-depth instruction book for drawing flowers and this wasn't it. I believe this book would be wonderful for young artists just starting to draw.

This is a good book because it simplifies the forms of flowers for the artist. You can always add more detail by looking at the actual flowers or photos of the actual flowers, but this is a good starting point.

Slightly better than the "faces" issue of this series, but still second rate when compared with the Usborne books. Illustrations are weak and poorly defined.

Perfect! It was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a book that takes a beginner like
me and walks me through, step-by-step, to drawing something simple, accurate and beautiful that I can
use in everyday life like on cards, notes, letters, journal entries or entertaining children.
I HIGHLY recommend it. This book increases slightly in difficulty as the reader/drawer progresses through
the pages of 30 flowers including the Rose, Daisy, Lily of the Valley, Poinsettia,
Tulip, Easter Lilly, Sunflower, Daffodil, Orchid, Carnation, Buttercup, Pansy and Violet.

I found that the skills from one flower build to the next one. As I practiced with the first flower,
it helped me learn skills for the second. It's clear and very user friendly; so long as I am paying
attention and using patience with myself as I learn. I definitely use my eraser as I go.

In my opinion, the flower shown on the front cover is a fairly accurate "average" of complexity for drawing.
Some of the flowers are more simple to learn than that one and some are more advanced.

I was happy with my results in drawing the first flower (Evening Primrose)after about 10 minutes.
Then the second flower (Buttercup) was a little more difficult, but the practice from the first made it smoother.
I was comfortable drawing the Buttercup in a little less than 15 minutes.

The quality that I learned to draw on these two flowers, in a few minutes, has enough beauty and elegance that I'd be
glad to put either of them on a party invitation or a family newsletter. I also feel confident that I could easily
show others how to draw them. The designs also have a simplicity about them so that I could color them with a crayon,
pencil or marker in a minute or less. Very versatile.

I've never been a drawing artist although I've always wanted to learn. I'm just starting. I like this book.

got this book and 3 others for my granddaughters for Christmas. It is just amazing to see how well they are drawing for 6 year olds. Well worth to keep in your "kid library."

I wish they had these types of books when I was a kid. My grand kids are having such a fun time creating beautiful pictures and gaining confidence in their abilities.
