"Every child must remember laying his head in the grass, staring into the infinitesimal forest, and seeing it grow populous with fairies." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
"I keep drawing the trees, the rocks, the river, I'm still learning how to see them; I'm still discovering how to render their forms. I will spend a lifetime doing that. Maybe someday I'll get it right." Alan Lee
"Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world." Marilyn Monroe

Next in our KIDS WEEK of giveaways is the I Can Draw series. With these approachable and engaging guides children ages four years and older will discover how easy it is to draw a range of favorite animals and subjects.
"One day the grandmother presented the little girl with a red velvet riding hood; and as it fitted her very well, she would never wear anything else; and so she was called Little Red Riding Hood."-The Grimm brothers, Grimm's Fairy Tales
