Cute and informative
on December 29, 2011
I was initially drawn to this book because of the adorable animals both on the cover and inside the book. I'm not a drawing expert, but this book had me producing surprisingly good animals right away! But before she gets into the animals, she tells you, step-by-step, her process in drawing. This helps you understand an easy way to tackle these animals immediately, which is not just extremely helpful, but the author makes you feel like she's right there with you, cheering you on. The author also breaks down each animal into individual steps, complete with adorable sing-song prose that often provides visual cues to help you understand the right shapes to draw (for example, half of a doughnut for a bear's ears). Plus, I think this book is easy enough to grasp that a child (maybe even around 10 years old) could possibly pick this up with great results.
