The introduction to this addition in the "Pencil, Paper, Draw!" series stresses fun and practice. It even reminds budding artists to date and display their drawings in order to track their progress. Two pages of "How to Use This Book" show a tried and true method of drawing, starting with basic shapes and adding details to build toward the final image. Over the course of sixty-four pages, step-by-step directions are given for twenty-eight different baby animals. Along with the usual suspects, readers can learn to draw a baby fox, baby hippo, baby seal, and baby sea turtle. Artists of any age (even this reviewer could produce a reasonably cute baby duck) will easily find success at drawing the cartoonlike baby animals. Serious �artistes' may find the drawings too simplistic and easy to accomplish. The book concludes with a note about the author/artist and a listing of his other books. Reviewer: L. F. Wade
Pencil, Paper, Draw!: Baby Animalsby Steve Harpster
An adorable tiger cub. A cuddly bunny with a carrot in its paws. An irresistible penguineveryone’s favorite animal these days. Those are just a few of the cute baby creatures any child can draw in just a few steps. This newest entry in the popular art series for kids ages 7 to 10 makes it simple to create pictures young artists will be proud to show off. With the help of shaded lines to guide their pencils and crayons across the page, children will produce a menagerie of wild and domesticated beasts, from a funny monkey on a log to a bright yellow duckling splashing in a puddle, from a little elephant to a puppy, kitten, or tiny mouse.
