“I am a teacher-librarian and I can’t keep these drawing books on the shelves! I am always looking for drawing books and these are perfect for the primary and early elementary age group. The simple instructions and diagrams help the children to produce realistic drawings which are the starting point for a host of creative projects! I’ve noticed that the children are becoming more confident in their ability to draw and they are developing a LOVE of drawing.”
