Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-5-Cute overload! These books combine a short, gentle story with step-by-step instructions for 11 drawings built up from easy shapes. A few sentences advance the story on one page, while the next shows readers how to draw a related object or character. Licensed characters (including Mickey Mouse, SpongeBob, and Dora) and others exhort young artists to draw sand castles, fish, pets, flowers, etc.-attainable goals that will increase confidence but will not necessarily encourage creativity. The clunky drawings and odd use of perspective probably won't bother children, but adults will notice. Good for early learners who have to be coaxed into even a modest amount of reading. α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From the Publisher

The History of Walter T. Foster

More than 80 years ago, Mr. Walter T. Foster proved you can accomplish anything you can dream! Having painted signs, sold hog medicine, performed in a stage act -- and invented the postage-stamp vending machine -- Mr. Foster turned to publishing. The "how to" art books he wrote, illustrated, printed, bound, packaged, and shipped on his own soon grew in popularity, and Mr. Foster became well known for proving that anyone can learn to draw. Today the Walter Foster Publishing company carries on the tradition, developing books and kits that encourage creativity and spark imaginations.

We purchased this book as a Christmas present for our daughter, who had just turned 5. Since she began preschool, she has been coloring and drawing a lot. We also purchased an inexpensive children's sketchbook and a 12-pack of Crayola colored pencils (note to self--the 12 pack doesn't include pink). She spent most of Christmas day with those three items.
The book has a full-color story on the left side of the page; while the right side shows the steps of how to draw an element of the story that was just read. At first, I sat with her, read the story, and then would verbalize the steps the book illustrated (you start with a small circle for the head, then go up and over . . .). Once she had colored in her picture, she got a reward sticker to place on that page spread (they come in the centerfold. I removed them before we began drawing). At first she would say she couldn't draw a ______ by herself. I would remind her that the book would teach her. We went step by step, and she was delighted to discover she could! Later, when I had to step away to do some Christmas chores, she analyzed the next how-to-draw page, and became confident as she did it herself.
In the week+ since she has finished the book, I have seen her sketching the butterflies, flowers, etc., the way she learned them in this book. It has been a great joy for her to learn that she can draw new things that are interesting to her.
The 11 drawing lessons in this book are: ladybug, apple tree, sunflower, bumblebee, butterfly, turtle, bunny, bullfrog, snail, unicorn, and four-leaf clover.
As a bonus, the book has a fold-out drawing pad. Each drawing pad page has a partially completed drawing. This is especially good for chldren who lack skill or confidence. I think most kids will love the drawing pad.

Wow! I am so happy with these books! My 5 year old little girl loves anything artistic. I ordered this book for a plane trip and she insisted on workign through the whole book - it kept her busy for almost the entire flight and then she had a masterpiece to show her grandparents when we arrived. When I got home I ordered additional books from this series and some extras to use as gifts. The step by step instructions were easy for her to follow and it really built her confidence that she could draw things on her own.

I have been looking at this particular item for awhile. In the past, I have purchased several other items for my daughter like this one thru Amazon, but this one will be perfect for Christmas! It is all around girlie and overall, not specific so she can draw a variety of things. She is 5 and draws using shapes so this will also help her practice (like Umi Zoomi) putting shapes together. If you have a little one, you know what a hit this is! Amazon and mail order really helps keeping up with Christmas shopping. Never too early to start!

this is a great drawing book for little ones. the step-by-step instructions are age-appropriate for little hands and my preschooler can draw each of the steps with some form of accuracy.

This was bought for my 6 year old niece. She sat down with it and other Draw books and it kept her busy for hours. It was very easy for her to follow and understand.

My granddaughter loves it and finds it so fun to be able to draw things. This book is easy but not too easy. It has stickers
and a story to go along with it.

My daughter is 5 and loves to draw. I got this just to see if she would like it and she sat down and drew everything in one day. She was able to follow along by herself and I will be getting more for sure!
