Junior J used to take Ed Emberley's book and ask me to draw animals for him. He would describe the steps to take (draw a rectangle next! add lines!), and he would be delighted at the animals that appeared at the end. However, we stopped these sessions since I was so busy with baby.
However, I noticed his drawings have been more detailed and realistic these days: he draws what he sees around him, and draws many dinosaurs. So recently, I casually left "Ed Emberley's Drawing Book of Animals" on his place at the table.
And wow, has he been drawing! He carries our box of crayons and his sketch book around, and draws and draws and draws:
|Some days, he hides behind the door and quietly draws while I put baby to bed.|
I love watching him work, and seeing that intense look of concentration on his face.
The book is easy to follow, with step by step clear instructions. Your child does not need to be able to read to draw...
|All drawn by Junior J on his own!|
... so long they are able to draw common shapes like circles, squares and lines, they would be able to draw all these animals!
If you're interested, this book is going at over 40% off on Amazon now (click here), as well as this other title by Ed Emberley. You can find a whole range of drawing books by him here! The book on animals is also available at the library (Bukit Merah and Jurong West branches).
