With I Can Draw: Birds & Butterflies, young artists can use basic shapes and easy-to-follow, step-by-step projects to draw 15 beautiful winged creatures.

The Toucan, Bald Eagle, and Monarch butterfly and are just some of the flying animals included in this book. With 15 fun drawing projects, I Can Draw: Birds & Butterflies is a collection of some of the most beautiful winged creatures. All of the drawings are created with simple shapes that are easy for young artists to make, and the cute illustrations are appealing and approachable to young ones.

The book begins with an introduction to drawing materials and instructions on how to use the book, and then it jumps right into the drawing projects. For a Monarch butterfly:

  • Kids start with a square, add a line, a curved line, and some more straight and curved lines. They are encouraged to keep following along with each step.
  • As they make their way through the multiple steps, all the new pencil marks to make are shown in a different color so it’s easy to know what to draw next.
  • Once they near the end of the project, these young artists will start to see a drawing of a butterfly appear on their paper, and all they need to do now is add some color.


Great job!
