Product Description:

This book, by illustrator Ralph Masiello, helps kids begin drawing through clear, step-by-step picture instructions. While each step is short and simple, the end result is a realistic (fairly detailed) bug. Each bug covers a pair of facing pages - on the left are the directions (starting with a simple shape or line, and then being built up, with the existing lines in black and added lines of each step in red so kids can clearly see what is being done at each step) and on the right is a full page picture of that bug colored realistically with different materials. Just over a dozen different bugs are included. - Melissa
Category Description for Ralph Masiello Drawing Books:

These books, by illustrator Ralph Masiello, help kids begin drawing through clear, step-by-step picture instructions. While each step is short and simple, the end result is a realistic and fairly detailed creature. Each drawing is explained on a two-page spread - on the left are the directions (starting with a simple shape or line, and then being built up, with the existing lines in black and added lines of each step in red so kids can clearly see what is being done at each step) and on the right is a full-page picture of the finished creature, colored realistically with different materials. Extra challenge steps are given for each drawing, for slightly older students who want to add realistic details. About 14 drawings are included in each book. Great for beginners. 32 pgs, pb. - Melissa

As an add on to our insect study. These drawing books provide a nice hands-on approach to the topic and help integrate art & science.

This book is a favorite of my boys and they don't even like bugs! We love to draw and this book makes it easy It explains things better than most of the other drawing books we have (We have a lot!) It's simple enough for a beginner but on each page there is a box that has a more advanced way to improve the drawing One example of this is on the beetle page the legs on the drawing are simple lines and in box it shows how to make more realistic legs The examples in the book are very colorful and they even give you more ideas for your drawing We have used this book over and over As I write the kids are asking to draw They've seen the book in front of me
