Beginning drawing and writing lessons for children ages five to ten. BOOK 7 focuses on forest animals of the world -- tropical and temperate. The books are simple enough for a young child to do independently, but a teacher or parent may present the lessons. Each drawing lesson includes a colorful picture and step-by-step instructions, while the writing lesson includes four simple handwritten sentences. The teacher or parent may introduce letter formation or have the children copy the sentences for handwriting practice, or use the lessons as a springboard for creative writing or report writing. Developed by an elementary school teacher and co-authored by her daughter. A brief list of the 21 lessons in the book includes chimpanzee, leopard, alligator, toucan, grizzly bear, fox, porcupine, moose, kangaroo, platypus and koala.
