Spotlight: You Can Draw

1I am a raving fan of every single art activity book I come across, and immediately buy them for Fen. She has so many she can’t keep up with them, and I consider her a good indication of whether an activity book is decent or not. You know, because she has ALL OF THEM.

After I bought this one, I sprinted home as fast as my stubby little legs would take me and whipped it at her. Then I sat and watched.

Verdict: love. I was so happy because I had fallen in love with it in the book store. Now I’m just trying to figure out why there is only 1 review for it on Amazon.

What I especially like about it is that it’s not an entire book geared to just boys or just girls. There is a mix of activities that can cross over, so girls can draw airplanes if they so choose, without feeling weird about having a “boy book”. *Shudder*

Your kids can learn to draw a tornado, cartoon expressions, lots of cool patterns, caricatures, hairstyles, etc. Lots of stuff you wouldn’t find in other books. It’s one of those things you buy for your kids and secretly want for yourself.

What do you think?

  1. I love these books, but they tend to get left alone in my house (maybe I should use them!). This looks like a good one. Have you seen the architecture one? Looks very cool and I might put it on my birthday list! Just popped over to the amazon and it is called Archidoodle.
