I found this drawing book after reviewing the Mini Chibi Art Class. My kids seemed interested, so we decided to check it out.

As the title suggests, this book contains step-by-step for a variety of…nouns. You know, people, places, and things. Since you don’t have the book in front of you, it’s worth noting that the drawings are all more of a cartoonish style than realistic renderings. The book is divided into categories:

  • Animals
  • Birds
  • Fish
  • Architecture
  • Transportation
  • Garden
  • Great Outdoors
  • People

Each of these categories contains 10 six-step instructions of a different thing to draw.

Then, there’s a subsection called “Try These Too”—since you’ve learned how to draw an anthropomorphic Running Turtle, now try drawing him on a scooter.

Each section ends with a 12 step challenge drawing that’s more intricate than the 6 step drawings, like an Ice Skating Penguin or the Brandenburg Gate.

My 13 year old prefers to draw in a manga/chibi style, but she enjoyed this book. She’s been working through it over the last month or so. She says that it’s simple and that it’ll help kids who want to be artists.  

I would absolutely recommend this book. I’m grateful that it came out when it did because my state still has restrictions in place and I’m always looking for fun things for my kids to do, especially since so many programs have been cancelled.

I received a copy of this book from Race Point Publishing/NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
