Emma (six years old) drew this adorable elephant after first making a thumbprint elephant by following the instructions in one of Ed Emberley’s Great Thumbprint Drawing Book. I love that she was able to see the shapes she would need to use for the elephant by making a thumbprint drawing! I think this method actually is working better for her than a more traditional shape-based drawing book.
Do you have a favorite art or drawing book that you think my kids would enjoy?
