Book 259: Ralph Masiello's Christmas Drawing Book

Ralph Masiello's Christmas Drawing Book, by Ralph Masiello, Charlesbridge 2013.   Preschool to Elementary.

This book could not have come out at a better time for our house.  Ever since my son was one, he's been making Christmas cards for our family and friends.  Granted, his early cards consisted of a single crayon line and a random sticker, but he was one and they were perfect.  Now he is five.  He just turned five about three weeks ago, and since his fifth birthday he has been copying other drawings.

Some of these drawings, like the tree, are simple enough for him to create a reasonable facsimile, so he feels a sense of accomplishment.  Some, like the sleigh flying over a city-scape, are so advanced they will give him something to work toward over the next few years.  In other words, this book is perfect for now and for years to come.

*I was given this book in exchange for a honest review.
