Children's Literature - Lisette Baez
Young artists and sports fans will be able to capture the action and excitement of sports through drawing. With over sixty exciting projects to choose from, readers can follow the step by step instructions to create that winning illustration! The “Supplies and Tips” pages will help readers get started. With just some basic supplies of drawing paper, pencils, and an eraser they will be on their way to drawing themselves into the action illustrating the winning touchdown or the perfect slam dunk. Whatever their sport, they can have fun and use their imaginations. Add personals touches like the team, its colors or add a number to a jersey. Each drawing can be unique; there are no rules to art. The Sports Illustrated photographs bring a real-life element to the book and really make the artist feel like part of the game. The possibilities are endless. Reviewer: Lisette Baez; Ages 8 to 14.
