Many young children are intrigued by movies and books that are about wild animals. They love to pretend that they are a lion or a tiger. They enjoy dressing up so that they look like a monkey or an elephant.

This unique book shows children how to draw their own wild animal pictures. The board double page spreads provide young artists with simple and easy-to-follow instructions on how to draw pictures of six wild animals including a lion, a monkey, and a zebra. Better still, a blank space is provided on every spread so that a child can try the drawing technique for him or herself.  The pages in the book all have a wipe-able drawing surface so that children can practice drawing the animals again and again.
