1-2-3 Draw Baby Animals


Inside this book you'll find step-by-step instructions on how to draw baby animals from puppies and kittens to tiger cubs and hippos. This is a guide book for drawing animals.

Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Parents and children can share time creating pictures together. The collection of potential drawings is quite broad, ranging from domesticated pets to wild animals.

Content Awareness Factors:

Although the target audience includes 5-year-olds, parents need to help pre-readers understand the steps. Their perspectives are not sophisticated enough to see the changes via the visual illustrations; you need to read the instructions.

Little Kid Reaction

Our Kindergartner loves animals and drawing, but was quickly frustrated with this book. Instead of using it as a guide book, s/he would flip through the pages to see the completed animal babies and then name them.

Parent Reaction

We'd have to agree with our child. While we found it easy to follow the directions and complete a drawing ourselves, we have the advantage of being able to read.

Type of Book:
This book uses pictures of hands to teach sign language.
Educational Themes:

In addition to the fun of drawing, the diversity of the animal groups is such that you can use the workbook as a baseline for creating flash cards or illustrating original stories. Pick an animal baby and then do some more research in other books.

Reading Level:
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:

Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow. You will definitely want to "test drive" the book to see if it meets your child's skill/reading level.
