Ed Emberley gives step by step instructions for drawing hundreds of everyday items from animals to transportation to furniture to buildings. Each item is composed of basic geometric shapes, letters and numbers that children are familiar with and the instructions are presented in an appealing comic strip style. This book offers children an approachable introduction to drawing that can boost self-confidence in their artistic abilities. Because this book encourages children to combine these parts into worlds of their own, it really encourages creativity rather than simple copying. Highly recommended for elementary school students.

I am disappointed with this book! The instructions would great if the pictures weren't so tiny! There are nine rows on each 8.5 X 11 page. Each row contains the instructions for a different drawing. The pictures are no bigger than the size of a quarter. With both the pages open there are 18 pictures! I think that it may be a little overwhelming for my five year old to follow.
