Draw and Learn Animals & Places
When this series became unavailable a couple of years ago, the homeschool community suffered a real loss. Thankfully the publisher has made it available again as a Timberdoodle exclusive. This adorable pre-drawing book is for children of all artistic abilities. Draw + Learn Animals + Places’ colorful pages include space for preschoolers to add the missing animal parts, such as eyes, noses, and mouths, or location components such as a chimney and flowers.
With bold and bright art, Draw + Learn Animals + Places features an assortment of houses, rooms, animals, and animal habitats. Colorful and engaging, Draw + Learn Animals + Places introduces your child to wildlife and to his community while making some important precursory steps to reading and writing.

This is great for when your child wants to do something but you dont have the time to sit there and work with them through things. This can easily be done fairly independently.
It's a cute little (big) book.
There are lot of skills to be gained from doing what seems to be, a purely for-fun activity. Fine motor skills and developing a vivid imagination are just two of them. That being said, my son is not very much into drawing for fun. This book really helped with that because he can see what the picture is trying to create/convey and add his own special touches. The only thing he didnt fully underatand was the mirroring concept with the animal faces so we have saved those for this next year. We have purchased additional copies for my other kids to enjoy as well. This is a very fun activity.
This book is very simple and easy, its a good starter for learning to draw.
We loved animals and places! It was so fun and engaging for my son. Awesome way to learn without really realizing they are learning
My very artistic son loved this book when we did the preschool curriculum and I was worried my less enthusiastic artist wouldn’t like it as much this year when we brought it back for her preschool curriculum, but much to my surprise it’s well loved! It’s just enough that she can do as little or as much as she likes and she can be as creative or as structured as she likes. The prompts on the page really help get her creativity going and it’s fun to see her get into art where she’s been less interested before.
