I'm in my 50s now, and I remember checking this book out of the library and spending hours going through its many drawing examples. Building animals from simple shapes any kid can draw is part of the appeal. Author Emberley teaches in such a way that even the most dexterity-challenged can draw stylized animals. No artist's eye or hand needed, just fun results.
Few books today for children are an insta-buy. This is one of them. Every kid should have this in his or her library. And if you want it to pass down to others, the durable library binding is the way to go and well worth the slight added cost.
The simplistic yet detailed way the various pieces are put together to create the pictures is amazing and clear.
I had come across this book in random browsing and now I've bookmarked it for future use with my daughter (still a baby).
I bought a copy for my friend who has a 3 year old. That's well below the recommended age, but they are having fun doing it together. My friend would draw the first step (bigger version) of a picture, her 3 year old will trace over it, and then my friend would add the next step, etc. etc. I think it helps her daughter learn how to do it piece-wise and really see the image form.
One simple book--I can see many years of use from it.
