Gr 2-4-Appealing color photos of adorable pets will keep kids turning the pages of this set. Short text passages offer fun facts to quote and tips about each species' or breed's temperament and needs. Six step-by-step drawing projects per volume start with an outline of the animal, making the finished drawing achievable even by kids who do best with tracing. This is a solid technique for learning to draw from a photograph, but it limits extensibility; because the drawings are not built up from basic shapes or physical forms, young artists will not learn to draw variations on the poses in the books. This outline-and-fill-in technique also bypasses the hidden benefits that can come with how-to-draw books: practice with geometric shapes, awareness of anatomical forms, and dimensional perception.α(c) Copyright 2011.
