Art Ideas by Mark Bergin

This book is the perfect guide for all young budding artists. The Beginner's Fun Book of Art Skills is a great way to start learning about the concepts involved in drawing, from colouring techniques and shapes to shading and erasing. It's packed with simple step by step illustrations and tips on artistic techniques using a variety of materials such as wax crayons, coloured pencils and ink. With 'splat-a-facts,' which give information about what's being drawn, this book acts as a creative spark, setting off a child's imagination so that they can confidently sketch and scribble animals and characters in their own scenes. Topics range from prehistoric dinosaurs to graceful ballerinas and from whimsical princesses to wild safari animals. Drawing and scribbling at a pre-school age builds skills that make creativity fun!

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

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.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

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!

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
