Book 246: Bug Drawing Book

Bug Drawing Book, by Ralph Masiello, Charlesbridge, 2004.

Today we didn't have to go anywhere:  Today was a stay-home-and-draw day.  My almost-five-year son had finished coloring his Hallowe'en pictures, so I thought he might like to draw some spiders and spiderwebs.  I was right.

The directions in the Bug Drawing Book are simple enough that my son could follow them (if I was right there talking him through them), and yet the illustrations are interesting and complex enough that I can see him using this book as reference for many years.   I'm especially grateful that Mr. Masiello examined the spiders and insects up-close so that I did not have to.
