Annette Richards, August 22, 2011 (view all comments by Annette Richards)
I just borrowed this book from our public library and our 13 year old daughter picked it up, grabbed a pencil and notebook, and spent the next few hours drawing and shading spheres, many, many spheres. Her siblings were so impressed with her 'animated' spheres that two of them have taken up pencils and paper and are following the lessons, too. "You Can Draw in 30 Days: The Fun, Easy Way to Learn to Draw in One Month or Less" is divided into short lessons, but our daughter's enthusiasm has carried her through the first 21 lessons in one week's time - so "or Less" is quite accurate. She has worn two pencils down to stubs. The ease of making scrolls and waves has surprised her and she says that drawing the flowers is quite fun. In this age of electronics I try to encourage arts, crafts, and penmanship whenever I can and this book is very user friendly and suitable for a wide age-range.
