This book is inspiring my five year old daughter to draw!

The step-by-step approach in this book is clearly illustrated, allowing my daughter to create some amazing artwork from animals to castles to dinosaurs. It is enchanting to watch your children learn how easy it is to flip to an exercise and choose circles, squares, triangles as a base for their artwork. Drawing along side her is also a lot of fun too. The book does a great job of providing just the right mix of easy and moderately complex projects to inspire young children to draw. As an educator of 15+ years with four children of my own, I highly recommend this book to any parent as a gift to inspire the budding artist.

I am learning to do illustrations for game programming and this book has been amazing in terms of learning the basics of drawing...simple and easy to understand - combining basic shapes and then modifying to create characters...has given me the basics to be able to draw which prior didn't think I had the skill.

Worth the purchase!

It keeps my kids occupied and away from the computer for a while that's a very hard thing to do and this works great, very happy with it.

HASH(0xa1a20ca8) out of 5 stars Really cute and fun book Dec 9 2013
By Nicci - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This one combines 3 of his cartooning books : Draw a Circle Draw anything, Draw a Square Draw Anything and Draw a Triangle Draw Anything.
I have seen this book many times at Michael's and just thought I was cool.
I was right. Though it is meant for children ages 4 and up, artists of all ages and levels could enjoy this book.
Fun and Simple, this book gets one inspired.
Though I wish the templates we made out of something stronger, so that they would last longer, it was a good idea to put them in the book.
All in all this is a great book and will make a great gift for an artist you know.

HASH(0xa1a20ef4) out of 5 stars Great learn to draw starter Dec 18 2013
By Jackie Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 5 year old son who loves to draw stick people. The figures are mostly simple shapes, but do incorporate other drawing to finish the figure. All in all a good book of good quality. Seems like it will hold up to years of abuse.

HASH(0xa1a20eb8) out of 5 stars Daughter Loves this book May 29 2014

We have spent a lot of hours using this book and I love it. My daughter (7 years old) can create some surprizingly good cartoons with this book.

I highly suggest it because it has good step by step details that can be followed and not like some of the crazy art books with 3 steps and a completed amazing drawing.

This cute book breaks down simple drawing into easy steps. First saw this book at Michael's, and bought one for my 10 year old grandson. Wanted another one for his 9 year old sister, and found it at the right price, with free shipping when combined with other items, at Amazon. They will be one of the gifts in their Easter baskets.
HASH(0xa1a23228) out of 5 stars Great concept, learn to draw with basic shapes Sept. 18 2015

Great concept, learn to draw with basic shapes. The instructions are easy enough to follow, that my 5 year old was able to draw 6 of the characters without any difficulties. Would recommend for other aspiring artists.
