Book Review by "The Artisti's Magazine, Nov. '97 issue
This is taken directly from the "Book Reviews" pageby Karen Mather, The Artist's Magazine, November 97 issue. "Drawing With Children", by Mona Brookes. Prepare to be amazed. [...] There's no other art book quite like it. Brookes has defined the elusive concept of "seeing artistically" into practical, teachable, easy-to-learn lessons that can empower children - as well as beginning adults - to draw realistically. [...] This outstanding book goes on to provide all the necessary tools for students to become lifetime artists. Putnam, 274 pp., softcover.

Realistic drawing/painting = arts for alot of people.
Mona Brookes methods even taught me how to see and draw the easy way, that art school never taught me.
She unravels the secrets by easy copying exercises, that teach you how to see how different basic forms and lines build up more complex form and compositions. I saw myself analyzing my subject matter in a different way after doing only the first exercises.
this book is good for beginners, children, teenagers or adults. It should be read by every teacher and art teacher!
I should have heeded the 2 star review. The book cover is deceptive showing a bright colourful picture by a 5 year old. There are a few colour examples in the centre pages but otherwise is quite uninspiring for a child and parent to learn from.
I now notice the reviews are dated 1998.
The book is outdated along with the reviews.
I am returning it.
