Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Celebrate the wonders of autumn with lessons on pinecones, owls, squirrels and more. Developed by an elementary school teacher and co-authored by her daughter, each colorful lesson combines beginning drawing instruction with writing exercises. Children can complete the lessons successfully on their own, but the book is far more than just a drawing book. The lessons are easy to integrate into unit studies, to modify for language arts instruction, or as help in writing and illustrating reports. 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

When we began working on this book, Marie Hablitzel (my mother and co-author) showed me a lesson of how to draw a cluster of grapes by drawing rows of circles positioned like a stacked set of billiard balls. I had not seen this lesson in years and seeing it then, prompted me to flashback to a proud moment when I was seven-years-old.

Alone, using water from the wading pool, I made circles with my wet fingers on the sun-warmed surface of the cement patio in our backyard. My challenge was to draw four circles, the same size, in a row. This is difficult to draw freehand since it involves two tasks -- duplicating the size of a circle and keeping all the circles on a level line. On this hot day, my circles quickly evaporated into the dry air, so I repeatedly attempted to draw a perfect row. After mastering a decent row of circles, I proceeded to add a second row of circles nestled into the spaces between the circles in the first row. Many tries later, I got three rows of circles to line up correctly, creating a staggered pattern. The circles vanished, but I was glowing with pride!

Thirty years later, with Marie's simple drawing of grapes before me, I had something concrete as to why I was so passionate about my mother's lessons. Yes, my mother taught me to draw, but she also taught me to think, be observant, and pay attention to details - all the while filling my head with questions to ask or ponder. -- Kim Stitzer

This series is one of my all time favorite homeschool finds! Simple step by step drawing and copy work. My 5 year old started book 1 in preschool. His drawings were adorable but pretty much unrecognizable. But, he persisted and now a year later is becoming quite the artist! Plus his handwriting is great now and I know that these helped him learn to read.
The best part about it is he LOVES to do it! It's a treat for him! Who knew handwriting could be fun!
We've got almost every book now. After he finishes a book, we pick out the best section or two and make his `own' book by gluing the drawings and copy-work onto construction paper and putting it all in a clear report folder. He's so proud!

Bought this book to go along with some of my American History units this year for my 1st grader. I am really excited for her to use it. She already loves drawing so it should be fun for her to do it in a more structured way. Bought it uses and it is in mint condition.

This looked like a very good book..... I got it for a little girl from The Christmas Angel Tree so I don't know who it went to..... one of the suggestions on her tag was a book on how to draw..... after reading the reviews I decided to get this one..... I think whoever got it would be very happy with it.

We are using this series as art instruction at home. The examples are easy enough for me (very much NOT artistically talented) to follow. The kids love to draw and embellish each subject, and often carry their lesson over into other drawings. There are even options to expand the lesson as children improve or show greater interest.

My 5-year-old loves to write and draw. I like these books because they give simple explanations and include short sentences for them to practice their handwriting. My son likes to take these books and can follow the directions easily and draw them by himself. I'm even learning to draw!

I bought these for my kids, one of whom was 5 at the time, and loves art of all kinds. We all love them. I really enjoy learning to draw, too! I thought I couldn't, turns out I'd never learned. I like the subject matter in all of the books, too.
