Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-6. Each book in the Draw It! series begins with an introduction to the tools of drawing and to the illustrator of that volume--Mark Adamic in Aircraft, David Westerfield in Animals. The rest of each book is composed of drawing projects, one per double-page spread. Each includes a brief introduction and six illustrated steps for sketching a subject. For instance, the spread "Draw an F-15 Eagle" begins with a few sentences about the fighter plane, then describes and shows how to draw it in six steps, from basic shapes to details and shading. Aircraft is arranged chronologically, from the Wright brothers' flying machine through the Spirit of St. Louis to a modern Bell JetRanger helicopter. In Woodland Animals, the format is similar, but the introductory sentences give a few facts about each animal, such as the skunk, the woodpecker, and the porcupine. An effective new series for children learning to draw. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-Both books start with the same two-page introduction that offers a few standard tips for budding artists. Suggestions include drawing lightly at first and later erasing what you don't need, paying attention to spaces between lines as well as the lines themselves, and adding details and shading to the finished product. Instructions for drawing 12 animals are included in each book. A short paragraph introduces each one, with key words highlighted and referred to in a glossary. Children who take time to study the drawings should be able to replicate the pictures. Written directions clearly enhance the step-by-step process. Youngsters who want a more challenging guide than that provided in Ed Emberley's books but are not quite up to Lee J. Ames's titles will be able to hone their talents by following the illustrations offered here.-Ilene Abramson, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
