This review is from: How to Draw 101 Dinosaurs (Paperback)
My 6 year old loves dinosaurs, so I thought this would be a great way of encouraging her to have a go at drawing some... This book is really perfect for it!
There is a huuuuuge selection of dinos to choose from - some I'd never even heard of - along with the 'favourites' you'd expect to find. The pages of the book are very simple and easy for a child to follow - each page has 2 different dinos to draw. The drawings are laid out in very simple, gradual stages - i.e. you do the curve of the head, neck and back... then add the facial features... then add the belly, then the legs etc... very simple, very easy-to-follow stages. The final stage is to add 'detail' such as a pattern of the skin, but obviously your child can use their own imagination too for that.
Literally on first ever go, my daughter produced 6, very recognisable dinos that very closely resembled the ones in the book - and she thoroughly enjoyed doing it! As the first one came out so well and she realised how easy to follow this book was, she gained the confidence to do more, and that's how we ended up with 6 in a row!! We're still only a few pages into the book, too.... loads more to do yet!
I'd definitely recommend it.
