Category Description for ArtK12 Draw the World Series:

Kids hear and read names of places in connection to history, people, events, books, vacation plans - everywhere! But without an understanding of geography, all places only mean "somewhere." This series aims to help children commit maps of regions to memory. With simple, fun instructions, children start at one end of a region and work their way around until they can easily draw the whole region from memory. Pages have the featured state or country name at the top, tan backgrounds and a colorful border across the bottom featuring buildings, landmarks, animals, and vehicles representative of the region. The middle of each page holds the surrounding states/countries/features learned so far, bordered in black and labeled with their abbreviation (states) or name (countries, major bodies of water), and the one being learned bordered in red along with memorable instructions for drawing it. For example, Learn to Draw Africa begins with drawing the Red Sea: "At the top, right side of the paper (not too close to the edge), begin with the Red Sea. It's easy to draw; it looks like a slug oozing its way up toward the top of the page." From there you'll add countries moving westward and then south, one at a time, until you can draw the whole continent! Text is a handwritten font and outlines are simple sketches. Though an actual map is always a nice resource, these simplified shapes will be much easier for young students to draw than all those little nooks and bumps! To contrast this series with the Drawing Around the World series, this book's sole focus is being able to draw the region and uses simple shapes, while Drawing Around the World also includes state/country facts and information, review of state/country names, blank map labeling, and more exact borders. Drawing Around the World is a write-in series, while you will practice these books with your own paper. Books run approximately 65 pages, measure 8.5"x11", sc. - Steph

What a great way to combine art and geography! This is something my daughter can do independently as well.

Being a tutor for Challenge A in Classical Conversations, I want to model good learning skills. Since I cannot draw, I needed a lot of help in this area! I want to give my students the best possible chance at excelling in this daunting task of drawing the world!

If we buy the Draw the World Set do we need this book as well?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The set does not include the final world map book. I will say my child enjoyed all the countries books very much, but the world was her least favorite, and we really did not need it.

Won over
I was skeptical about the claims of this book but I really wanted something that could show my children how to draw maps. When I opened the book, I was fully won over by the details and how thorough it was. Explanations are easy for my second grader to follow by himself. And that makes me happy.
