    Highly Recommended

    Builds on skills learned in previous Ed Emberly drawing books. For age range 6 - 9 or parents trying to impress their own children. A must for early childhood teachers!

    love 'em

    i absolutely love Ed Emberley's books! They are simply the best for introducing the concepts of drawing to even the very youngest artists. Kids love to see the instant results of getting their picture to "look" like something using only the most basic of shapes; furthermore, these books are a great introduction to the idea that everything is made of shapes.
    They are very user friendly, even for non-artist parents.
    A wonderful introductory tool!

    This book is great

    I got this book out of my school library. I am in fourth grade and love to draw. This book is awesome! It gives me hours of drawing and lots of ideas. I can't wait to get the other Big drawing books. I saw part of the Big Orange book too. Can't wait to borrow that one! Ed rocks!
