A very encouraging book that seeks to harness a child's creativity and support it. Real children's drawings are featured throughout the lessons with an appreciation for what a child can accomplish.
Author Mona Brooks writes:
"If you feel confident about your drawing but want a vehicle to teach ohers, approach this method with an open mind. If you don't feel confident about your own drawing or your ability to work with children, let me assure you this can change."
I found the book a great resource as a parent and even used it as a scout leader.
