My ten year old son has really taken to drawing this year and has pulled this out many times. He recently made a book of different animals in various habitats and biomes all inspired by this book. He exclaimed one day, “Mom, this book teaches you to draw almost everything!” I had to chuckle at that.
I am impressed with the sheer number of drawings/doodles taught in this book! It also helps break down complicated pictures so that even the artistically challenged can feel confident. As was noted, the Christian parent will want to proof it first for undesired pics, but overall it is a great art resource!
