Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tanya Cristini Klatt
Young artists will have a gobbling good time making Thanksgiving themed drawings from this selection in the “Holiday Sketchbook” series. The drawings are charming and simple with a few easy steps. There is some confusion over the terms used. For example, in many of the designs the author uses the term circle to describe what is clearly drawn as an oval. The only other drawback is the final picture shown for the reader is a digital image that includes a lot of shading and detail work that is not described in the directions. It would have been best to show an end product that the students could achieve with the art tools listed in the front of the book: colored pencils, pencils, and markers. This book would make a great autumn addition to an early elementary classroom. Other books in this series include: A Halloween Drawing Spooktacular, A Christmas Drawing Wonderland, and a Valentines Drawing Treat. Reviewer: Tanya Cristini Klatt AGERANGE: Ages 5 to 9.
