I have never seen a drawing book like Watch Me Draw: Favorite Pets. It's truly a one of a kind. Watch Me Draw: Favorite Pets is a 24 page paperback book and a little over 8 by 10 inches in size. The cover shows an example of the type of drawing instruction found inside. The stated age range is ages 4 and up, and both my 7-year-old and 4 1/2-year-old enjoyed the book.

The art lessons begin with a simple story on each page with a colorful illustration and a spot where the included reward stickers will go. After reading the story, the child can try to draw the pet or flip to the included drawing pad to complete a partially drawn picture of the pet. Doing so let my children gain confidence before trying to draw on their own. The drawing pad flips open so that it will lie next to the story and lesson being read. Children can refer to the text to determine what needs to be completed on the picture. There are many pets covered in the book like a dog, kitten, fish, bunny, iguana, turtle, pig, hamster, and several others.

The included reward stickers make a colorful completion to the pictures of the story. When the lesson is completed, children can select the sticker that corresponds with the story. Since most children enjoy stickers, itís a good reward for a well done lesson. This is a neat and innovative way to begin an easy introduction into art. I had to be careful not to let mine finish the book in one day.
