Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "There are a number of good books about getting started with drawing, but this slim entry in the How to Draw series is particularly nice. The cover features sketches of a cat, dog, and rabbit, allowing children to see both structure as well as a finished product. Inside, the book starts by showing pictures of animals drawn with different materials such as pencils, ink, charcoals, and pastels, and explains what each medium accomplishes. Next comes an introduction to perspective and looks at different parts of animals. The familiar circle method then gets kids drawing pets from head to tail. A dog, cat, fish, mouse, and bearded dragon get this treatment, and kids will move along with confidence as small captions explain how to refine the picture. The amount of information throughout is just right: thorough but not overwhelming. A glossary and a list of a few websites is appended.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist"
