Knights and Castles by Jorge Santillan


Knights and Castles by Jorge Santillan

Learn to Draw: Knights and Castles shows children how to draw six medieval things, from knights on horseback and coats of arms to fortified castles and fortresses. Each drawing is broken down into seven simple, easy-to-follow steps to help children create, and then colour in, their own knight and castle pictures. Fact boxes on each spread provide information about knights and castles, allowing children to learn about, as well as to draw, them. A glossary at the back of the book explains any complicated words, and a 'More Information' section gives suggestions as to how children can find out more about knights and castles. If children have loved learning to draw knights and castles, why not try learning to draw dinosaurs, dragons, fairies, mermaids, unicorns, baby animals, pirates and pirate ships in other titles in the series?

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
