Overview

A new entry in the acclaimed series! These bright, beautifully designed pages explode with ideas and instructions to help kids draw what they love most: all kinds of different horses in action. The left page of each spread guides budding artists through the whole process of drawing a special horse, from mane to tail, while the right side presents the animal in a setting, so children are inspired to expand their horizons and create complete imaginative pictures. And because there’s only minimal text, even pre-readers can follow along. With everything from a sweet mare and a cute colt to a strong stallion jumping, running, and rearing to tempt them, kids will eagerly pick this up and return to it again and again as they grow older.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-6

This drawing guide presents basics (starting with circles) for beginning artists. Readers will discover a wealth of information as they sketch a variety of equine subjects in action or in various poses-grazing, lying down, walking, trotting, cantering, galloping, jumping, and rearing. An Arabian, a draft horse, Appaloosas, a Shetland, racehorses, and even a unicorn and winged horse are included. A few sentences of historical information about each type of horse informs youngsters beyond simple drawing instruction. How to draw foals and face markings and an explanation of typical horse colors complement an introductory illustrated spread that identifies the terminology needed to describe horse parts or tack. The accessible instructions are presented with finished, illustrated demonstrations in colored pen to create an easy-to-use and attractive how-to for young artists.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX
