PUBLICATION INFO: Enslow Publishers, Inc., 2014

ISBN: 978-1-4644-0473-3

SOURCE: Publisher-provided copy

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

GENRE: how-to

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?

  1. 🙂 Reminds me of my daughter in 1st grade when “Rainbow Magic Fairy” series books were all the rage. I gave her a fairy stencil book kit that she adored!

  2. This looks fun! And if it’s designed so even preschoolers can participate, maybe I’d have a hope of actually drawing something recognizable! 🙂 I think I’ll have to give it a try!

    1. If I can draw a fairy, you can draw a fairy. Honestly, though, one of my favorite books is “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.” Or was that the left side. 🙂
