With just their pencils, kids can grow a blossoming garden on the page! It's so simple: budding artists just trace the colorful numbered lines. Kids will happily draw bluebells and chrysanthemums, daffodils and sunflowers, geraniums in a flowerpot, and more. Instructions explain the parts of the flower and provide tips on making them look realistic.
