What’s better than reading and drawing? Doing them together, in the same book! The Watch Me Read and Draw book series is special because it blends two things together that kids love: reading and drawing!
It’s easy and fun to learn to draw, especially when there’s a story to read and lots of stickers. In Watch Me Read and Draw: Dinosaurs, kids will read about Pete the pterodactyl who discovers an egg and sets out to find its parent. Throughout the story, readers will learn to draw 11 prehistoric pals, step by step, including dinosaurs that roamed the land, air, and sea. Included are drawing instructions for a Pterodactyl, Apatosaurus, Compsognathus, Sauroposeidon, Ankylosaurus, Ornithomimus, Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex, Diplodocus, Mamenchisaurus, and Triceratops!
Each page features easy-to-follow instructions so young artists can draw all of the dinosaurs from the story, one step at a time. Basic shapes that kids will recognize make it easy to follow along and learn how to draw. The flip-out drawing pad also offers drawing prompts and simple shapes for a jump-start, making it enjoyable and fun to draw favorite dinosaurs. Plus, there’s a whole bunch of colorful stickers inside to reward them as they complete the story along the way, and a prehistoric scene at the end to make their very own! It’s the perfect starter drawing book for kids who love to read and draw.
