STAR RATINGS: Each product is carefully reviewed in an unbiased manner. Star ratings are earned.
1 Star: There may be something wrong in the product details or description, it does not live up to what it is advertised as or made extremely low quality. I would tell my friends, acquaintances, and strangers that they shouldn't use their hard earned money on this product.
2 Star: This is not a great product at all. It has mistakes in the product details or description and does not live up to what it advertises or normal customer expectations. It is still now worth the money.
3 Star: This is a neutral rating. It met the product description and details for the most part but isn't something I am ever likely to order again. It could have some really cool features, An awesome looking design, Or maybe it’s just a killer deal. But overall the price of the product is not worth it.
4 Star: I like this product. This item has met all expectations, The design is sound, The build is great and the product does what it was made for. It’s a great product that i can recommend buying. However it didn’t wow me. It does what it is supposed to do.
5 stars: Wow! This item is amazing, it is an exceptional product. Not only does it meet all expectations but it’s well made and lives up to the product details and description. It exceeds normal consumer expectations.
I can see his confidence with drawing that he did not have before, which is great, and he often chooses to flip through this book and do some drawings during his free time.
We've tried other drawing books and they've left him frustrated and/or uninterested, but this one was a huge hit. I'm excited to try other Ed Emberley books!
The pictures are small, but that is the point! Don't wait or not buy because they might be "too small" Your child will love this book and the novelty of tiny images.
The instructions are very simple. It's a "I draw this line, you draw that line" kinda of set up with each of the images adding in more and more lines/shapes until you have completed the drawing. Pair this with a nice sketch book and some fine tipped pens or markers and you have a winning present for any child in your life.
I bought this for my six year old who loves to draw. he spent the first couple of weeks using this book to draw the same cars over and over, but something clicked and with practice he improved and now uses the book to make great drawings.
Update - still loving this book! My son, now 8 still uses this book all the time.
The 1 star reviews focus on the small size of the pictures, but I have to use a magnifying glass to look at a lot of things and I had no trouble seeing these without help. If your 6 year old can't see these pictures, they probably need glasses.
