Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Stephanie R. Pearmain
“Drawing with Sports Illustrated Kids” is a fun series with easy steps for drawing different sports figures in action. Each book includes a table of contents and a list of supplies the reader will need. The table of contents is a great addition for young readers who are learning about parts of a book. Some of the positions included in the baseball book are: a batter standing ready, a batter waiting for the pitch, the batter swinging, the batter bunting, a runner in action toward the base, an outfielder catching, the catcher catching, the pitcher in action, a fielder catching a fly ball. The examples and steps are easy to imitate, so kids will have a great time drawing cool action pictures. In five easy sketches of circles and lines, a detailed figure comes to life. Young artists will certainly impress their friends and teachers. The book guides the reader/artist through light sketches and then encourages shading, deepening the outline, or coloring the final piece to really bring it to life. Reviewer: Stephanie R. Pearmain; Ages 7 to 12.
