Recently I found these books and these and I cannot say enough good things about them. Our 2nd born is quite the drawer at age 5 he has way more patience then most and an attention to detail I am shocked by. I decided these books might be a good buy because they are very specific and show you step by step how to draw hundreds of items. Between the world book and the animal book our first born has created whole scenes of steam boats and whales in the ocean, lions with safari trucks near by. And he has begun to keep a notebook. He is slowly drawing each item on it's own page in a notebook. That book will someday make it into the memories box.
