Drawing Journals

Part journal, part scrapbook, part sketchbook and a thoughtful gift for the tween/teen with a lot on their minds! The spiral binding makes it lie flat, which is a lovely feature. Each page has something interesting on it, like a prompt. Sometimes you draw; other pages have you write a bit, but there is always something there to work with. This book is as appealing for a boy as for a girl. The images have a sepia quality, so it isn't too cutesy. Here are some examples of your tasks (should you choose to accept!): Make a drawing using only letters. Invent an electronic device. Draw this dog...upside down...with your eyes closed...without lifting you pencil. Other pages have no directions. Like a blank family tree, empty jars to fill and an ant farm to design. I loved the variety of prompts so much that I was thinking about what I would draw tofinish the roller coaster, make some graffiti or draw clothes on animals! If you have a reluctant writer, do a page as a non-threatening warm-up activity. Each prompt is only 1-2 pgs. Of course your artsy kids will have fun, but since it is a private thing, like a diary of sorts, those who do not fancy themselves an artist can let loose and have fun being creative. Once the book is complete, you have a keepsake - a snapshot ofhow your child was thinking at that time in their life. The size makes it easy to stash or take with you. 8" x 9" 160 pp, pb. ~ Sara
