Junior How To Draw: Cars, Trucks and Planes and Wild Animals (Top That Publishing) by Kate Thomson and Barry Green
Would you like to draw amazing pictures of cars, trucks and planes or wild animals? Now you can! This book will guide you step by step through the drawing process with clear instructions, diagrams and top artist tips to help you create brilliant instructions!
These books are perfect for the summer holidays, great rainy day activities, as I am sure there will be a few this year! There are four books in the series so far: cars, trucks and planes; wild animals; baby animals; and fairies. Recommended Retail Price is £2.99 and I think that is a great price for something that will give children hours of fun.
The books work on the basis of using basic shapes and are broken down into four easy to follow steps, starting with outlines using the basic shapes before adding detail and definition. There are many different animals and vehicles included in both books, plenty to keep the children (and adults) occupied for hours. There are also instructions for drawing vehicles from different perspectives in the book. Included within both books are also useful facts included about each thing being drawn.
I definitely recommend this series of books as a must buy for this summer's school holidays. Well priced, great set up and plenty to keep children occupied. The four books will have something for everyone to learn to draw that they like.
Thank you to Top That Publishing for sending me the books to review as part of the Yummy Mummy Review panel.
