Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tiffany Torbeck
Instead of buying them, have your readers consider making Valentine’s Day cards with the help of this book. Using the simple, step-by-step instructions, potential artists can learn to draw the basic symbols of Valentine’s Day like hearts, flowers, and balloons as well as more complicated characters like teddy bears and Cupid. The instructions guide readers through several steps for each drawing, allowing them to sketch, then erase and embellish as needed. Even though this is a Valentine’s Day drawing book, some of the projects can be adapted for other holidays or occasions. The cat, for example, can quickly be made for Halloween decorations and the goldfish drawing could be adapted for comic strips. The drawings may look daunting at first, but the clear instructions will help any artist, with just a little patience and practice, make lovely cards for Valentine’s Day. Should be purchased anywhere that drawing books are in high demand. Reviewer: Tiffany Torbeck; Ages 7 to 11.
