Doodle Books


Children’s Bookwatch review for Doodle Books: “With an informative commentary and quite nicely illustrated by Rob Court, Doodle Books is a fourteen volume series of instructional books specifically designed and enthusiastically recommended for children ages 4 through 7 (preschool through first grade) to instruct them in the art of drawing simple pictures using basic shapes. Each of these instructional manuals for aspiring young artists takes them from a basic simple shape (such as a triangle, square or circle), to a final drawing in just four easy steps. Fun and easy, the individual titles are available separately. School and community libraries should acquire the entire ‘Doodle Books’ series of hardcover books with reinforced library bindings for their collections.” Available on Amazon
