We take this book on holiday for rainy days, and my children (aged 6 and 8) love it. By following the step by step pictures they can quite quickly draw children doing lots of different things eg skateboarding, walking to school or roller-skating. The pictures are simple outlines with basic details - no shading or colouring - and they help my children to understand the basic shapes and proportions. We all produce much better drawings with the book than without it - and the results are very satisfying.

I bought this present for my daughter, and she's very pleased with it. Only little negative is that it doesn't have written instructions, which we thought it would do. But the drawing ideas are very easy to copy, and have helped my daughter get to grips with drawing techniques.

Overall it's a good buy, just be aware that there aren't any written instructions!

Maybe its me but this was really disappointing, - it seems to be aimed at quite young children at an age where (in my experience anyway)they think their drawing is great so wouldn't be interested in it, it is then to `young' for when children recognise they could improve their people drawing skills. Also the examples given are not really the type of people drawings my children identify with - I was looking for a book which could help my daughter (age 10) draw pictures of her friends (stepping up from stick people but not yet figure drawing) and this is not it, any ideas gratefully received.

My daughter who is 9 yrs old finds drawing people very hard and especially hands, so I bought this book to help her. It gives basic cartoon pictures, but its a start to give her some confidence.

If like me you cannot draw at all, really not even a little, bit then this book is for you. I teach young children English and pictures are a really useful tool to help them understand what we are learning - up until now however it has been thanks to their, vivid, imaginations that they were able to identify my scribbles. Maybe if someone had given me Ms Soloff Levy's work in my formative years I would be able to draw now so I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is starting out.

I like the look of this book. It looks easy for a child to copy and use to improve their drawing skills.

My son is 6 years old and not the best drawer but wanted to learn how to draw people. It was one of the first presents he started using Christmas morning. It's fairly simple but isn't for total beginners.
