Beginning drawing and writing lessons for children ages five to ten. BOOK 8 focuses on dry land animals of the world - Savannas, grasslands, mountains, and deserts. The books are simple enough for a young child to do independently, but a teacher or parent may present the lessons. Each drawing lesson includes a colorful picture and step-by-step instructions, while the writing lesson includes four simple handwritten sentences. The teacher or parent may introduce letter formation or have the children copy the sentences for handwriting practice, or use the lessons as a springboard for creative writing or report writing. A brief list of the 21 lessons in the book includes giraffe, zebra, lion, ostrich, elephant, horse, armadillo, pronghorn, yak, llama, camel and coyote.

Learn to draw the continents, too! The series won the Teachers' Choice Award, is a regular recipient of Practical Homeschooling Reader Awards, and was selected one of the top new products at NSSEA Ed Expo 2001.
From the Author
My mother challenged her students and expected the most from everyone in her class. I was a bright seven-year-old, but I remember joining the class mid-year, working on math and thinking, "These kids are smart . . . this is hard . . . but it's so much fun here," then getting back to work with renewed resolve. Everyone's attitude in the classroom was positive -- we were there to learn! The reality, however, was we began each day drawing pictures together. Every morning, each child in the class -- bright or slow to learn, English-speaking or struggling with the language, artistic or non-artistic -- looked on their desk at a picture and could say with pride, "Look what I made!" Drawing instruction made success the main ingredient of my mother's classroom. -- Kim Stitzer
