    Learn to Draw: Baby Animals shows children how to draw six adorable young animals, from puppies, kittens and bunnies to lambs, foals and chicks. Each drawing is broken down into seven simple, easy-to-follow steps to help children create, and then colour in, their own baby animal pictures. Fact boxes on each spread provide information about each baby animal, allowing children to learn about, as well as to draw, them. A glossary at the back of the book explains any complicated words, and a 'More Information' section gives suggestions as to how children can find out more about baby animals.If children have loved learning to draw baby animals, why not try learning to draw dinosaurs, dragons, fairies, mermaids, unicorns, knights, castles, pirates and pirate ships in other titles in the series?
