1-2-3 Draw Knights, Castles, and Dragons


by Freddie Levin

Gr. 3-5. This large-format paperback teaches children how to draw 24 vehicles, including a race car, a fire truck, a school bus, a cement truck, and a limousine. Most projects are shown on a double-page spread, though some take another page or two. Levin begins by discussing the basic shapes and the tools (ruler, compass, circle template) that can be used to make the pictures. Then she shows how to draw each vehicle, beginning with a basic rectangle, then rounding shapes and adding lines and colors to finish the picture. Each step is noted in the text as well as visually. Each project is broken down into many simple steps and shown larger than in many other drawing books, so these instructions may be somewhat easier for children to follow than those in similar books. An attractive guide to drawing vehicles. Carolyn Phelan
