SOURCE: Publisher-provided copy

INTENDED AUDIENCE: preschool to adult (Yes, I joined the fun!)

SYNOPSIS: If you’ve ever wanted to create a fairy world, here’s your chance. This how-to book shows you how to draw fairies, forest creatures, food and more.

THEMES/TOPICS: how-to, drawing, fairies

WHY I LIKE THIS BOOK: Curto boils down these designs to simple shapes like triangles, ovals, and circles, so even preschoolers can participate. She also relies more on step-by-step drawings than words. I drew the fairy below (colored by Finley), while Cooper drew the cake and fairy wand. Not too bad, eh?
