What better way to take a break from the summer heat than by spending a little time chilling out with the adorable Learn to Draw Polar Animals book? With its simple step-by-step instructions and beautiful full color photos, your child will be drawing snowy friends in no time.
To get started, try drawing some basic shapes. See how easily these polar animals begin to take form?
After some practice, the only problem will be trying to decide which amazing animal to draw first! A beluga whale? An arctic fox? Perhaps a macaroni penguin? With over 25 arctic and antarctic creatures to choose from, your child will have hours of drawing fun at their fingertips. Included are fun facts about each animal as well as a mini quiz with answers in the back of the book (no peeking!)
Take a look at these majestic Emperor Penguins detailed in the book. Drawing the trio is simply and clearly shown along with this explanation of the penguins' features:
"Emperor penguins have sleek, regal black-and-white coloring, with yellow and orange accents on the neck and chest."
Learn to Draw Polar Animals will be an exciting polar adventure for your child—without having to brave the frozen tundra!
