Drawing Animals Shape by Shape Create Cartoon Animals with Circles, Squares, Rectangles & Triangles by Christopher Hart

If you can make a simple shape, you can draw an animal! In his fun follow-up to Drawing Shape by Shape, Christopher Hart - the world's bestselling author of how-to-draw books - has devised an irresistible menagerie of more than 90 colourful creatures to create. Begin with a basic circle, square, rectangle, or triangle, and turn it step-by-easy-step into a kitty, dog, elephant, baby gator, and many more. And what's really cool is, you can still see the starting shape even in the completed animal! Perfect for children - and artistically inclined adults, too!

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.
