Timberdoodle sent me a copy of How to Draw Almost Everything to review. I received no compensation for this post.How to Draw Almost Everything is a 224 page book full of simple cartoonish drawings that will delight your child.

My kids love to draw and we have an entire shelf filled with drawing books. Everything from portrait drawing to cartooning. Today I am excited to share with you a new drawing book our family has been using. 

How to Draw Almost Everything is a 224 page book full of ideas and inspiration for drawing. This is less a how-to book and more a here’s-an-idea-for-what-you-can-do book. The first few pages have recommendations for drawing supplies (always a plus) then it is on to the fun. The book is divided into color-coded sections dealing with items like: food, buildings, around the home, animals. It makes flipping to the section you want fast and easy.

The drawings are simple and easy to follow. There are very few words; it is basically a matter of looking at the pictures and and recreating them. I love working with colored pencils (these are our all-time favorites*) so this book was very appealing to me.

* for younger kids I love these Lyra Color Giants.

Many long years ago when I was young and still trying to be Laura Ingalls, I hand drew a menu board for our family. I wrote out our favorite meals and drew teeny-tiny pictures of the foods (what was I thinking? I have five kids five and under) to illustrate it. I really wish I had this book back then. 

I love the simplicity and variety of these drawings. Your kids will learn to draw everything from sea creatures to whiskey.

I really like this How to Draw Almost Everything and am happy to have it as an addition to our drawing shelf. After just a few minutes with this book yur child will produce simple almost cartoon-like illustrations.

If they prefer portrait drawing I recommend these and if they are into actually cartooning, these ones are perfect

How do you handle art in your homeschool? It has been one of the kids favorite subjects for them and me.
