Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 3- Each book includes 14 wordless "lessons" with four steps in each. The stylized black-and-white line drawings move left to right across the spreads. Details are minimal, and perspective, scale, and shading are not addressed. The lessons, almost without exception, result in full-frontal or side views. The final step is in full color but the drawings are never put into a context. Potentially complicated drawings are simplified; e.g., only the heads of a tiger and monkey are included in Jungle Animals . Young artists may find some of the content ho-hum. Sports Things include different types of balls, a bat, and a golf club. Thanksgiving includes leaves and bowls full of mashed potatoes, stuffing, and cranberries. Also, the depiction of the Native American is stereotypical. Watercraft includes a raft, a kayak, and a submarine. A concluding page in each volume describes lines and their characteristics. These small volumes will get lost among the larger and ever popular but more advanced series, such as Lee J. Ames's "Draw 50..." (Doubleday).-Carol S.
