Great Mar 17, 2007
This series is great! My kids absolutely love it. It can bring out the budding artist in all of us.
What a resource! Jan 16, 2007
These books have been invaluable in my classroom. However, they can be used in ANY situation to learn how to draw. Easy, non-threatening and FUN!
Drawing helps writing practice more fun Oct 3, 2006
These books are great. They have many thematic ties to our curriculum. I made them into centers by copying the book and gluing them to a colorful folder and laminating it. I put those in the writing center whenever we were focusing on a certain theme. A great resource for 1-3.
Improves handwriting and basic drawing skills! A++++ Jan 1, 2006
This is a wonderful set of books. We are using it as a handwriting practice program (for 1st & 2nd grade) rather than a drawing program, but I'm sure it has applications both ways.
My children typically dread handwriting, but they really enjoy this format - learning to draw something recognizable and then copying the 3-4 informative sentences that are provided. Copying the drawings helps them with following step-by-step directions as well as fine motor control. They are justifiably proud of their sketches and often add other fanciful elements to their drawings.
And they take great care in their writing, even though they have to translate the writing into the D'Nealian format. In their old handwriting sessions, the writing would start neat and quickly deteriorate by the end of the page, but using this program, the writing is beautiful from beginning to end. It is almost as if they want their writing to look nice because they are so proud of their drawings.
We did buy special writing paper (top half of the page is blank for the drawing, and the bottom half has lines for writing) from a local teacher supply store, and I have also seen similar paper at Office Depot, although the qualify of the teacher supply store paper was considerably better.
Can't Keep Them On the Shelves! Mar 18, 2004
I am a teacher-librarian and I can't keep these drawing books on the shelves! I am always looking for drawing books and these are perfect for the primary and early elementary age group. The simple instructions and diagrams help the children to produce realistic drawings which are the starting point for a host of creative projects! I've noticed that the children are becoming more confident in their ability to draw and they are developing a LOVE of drawing. Tell me where to get more books like these!
