He LOVES the book. The activities range from simple to complex, so he can pick and choose based on his mood. We've done a few of them together, which is great for us because it gives us something to bond over--mom's don't usually have that much in common with 9 year old boys, but everyone loves to draw skyscrapers. It occupies him for at least 30 minutes, sometimes hours, which means less time in front of the TV, computer, or video games.
Some thought-provoking ones too like using a mountain slope, design in section the arrangement of a small thermal bath house and you are asked to consider views, light and privacy. So it can go from designing something simple to the very complex. I recommend this book to any novice architect, but I also recommend this to any pro out there too, because this book will get you to open up your skills and design things you might have never designed otherwise. There are plenty of buildings, cities and houses to design as well.
One bobble is that most scenes are set so one is a little limited by set scenes to draw a building or a city, but that too is a challenge I kind of like since it makes you think about how to overcome a set scene and yet still design a great house, building or city. Just keep in mind this is a fun book to just create in. I love this book and I think you will too.
