As soon as I saw this book on the review list, I knew I had to get it for my dino-loving son. I was right--it was a hit!
Draw-A-Saurus, Everything You Need to Know to Draw Your Favorite Dinosaurs is, in a word, fun! No dry, boring instructions here! Nooo, sir. This book is bright, colorful, and funny! I particularly love the "editor's notes".
Dinosaur facts are included throughout the book, as well as step-by-step instructions on how to draw various types of dinosaurs.
My son is 7. He had a bit of trouble with the more detailed steps of dino drawing, but I was very impressed with how well he did. I have no artistic talent when it comes to drawing, but I helped my son out with the more advanced steps and I was quite satisfied with our attempts. :) Even if it wasn't perfect, my little guy and I had fun together, and he learned something new. So, for educational as well as fun value, this book is a winner!
There is evolutionary content in the book, so just a heads up there.
