About this book

It's Fun to Draw Safari Animals introduces animals of the wild and explains how to draw them in easy steps. These animals introduce the reader to a number of artistic styles, from drawing a proud lion in crayons to colouring a swooping eagle with felt tip pen. Although the images are easy to create, each involves learning a different artistic skill. And this title features a wide variety of safari animals, including a cheetah, an ostrich and many more.

Throughout It's Fun to Draw Safari Animals, you'll even see a cheeky red butterfly, getting along with all the safari animals! It's Fun to Draw is a great way to start learning about the concepts involved in drawing, from colouring techniques and shapes to shading and erasing. Colouring techniques are introduced, using a variety of materials such as wax crayons, coloured pencils and ink pens. With 'Splat-a-facts', which give information about what's being drawn, these books act as a creative spark, setting off your child's imagination so that they can confidently sketch and scribble a variety of animals and objects in their own scenes. Pronunciation guides accompany the simple step-by-step instructions and 'Splat-a-facts' so the whole experience is both educational and enjoyable. The instructions are written in a repetitive way and can be used for practising guided reading. Controlling a pen and making marks on paper help to lay the foundations for practicing writing. Drawing and scribbling at a pre-school age builds skills that make creativity fun!
