8 Ways to Draw an Elephant by

This unusual art activity book featuring the Indian elephant introduces children to a variety of Indian art traditions. The elephant is imagined and rendered in eight different folk and tribal styles. Through tracing, patterning and coloring the elephants, the child can immerse herself in detailed exploration of styles - or just have fun. Older children will begin to understand that art is as much about the imagination as it is about depiction.

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!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
