Review: 

This lovely and engaging book presents 30 drawing projects (of mostly religious subjects) in an easy-to-follow step-by-step fashion so that even very young children can gain confidence in their drawing skills and enjoy making beautiful decorations for holy day decorations, greeting cards and more.

The projects included are as follows:

Sacred Heart of Jesus
Immaculate Heart of Mary
Rose
Rosary
Bethlehem
Chalice and Host
Bouquet
Bow
Nativity
Lamb of God
Monstrance
Mother Mary
Child Jesus
Praying Boy
Praying Girl
Altar
Cherub
Crucifix
Baby Jesus
Saint Joseph
Jesus, Our Savior
Our Lady of Fatima
Angel
Our Lady of Guadalupe
Risen Christ
Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha
Good Shepherd
Saint Francis of Assisi
Saint Therese of the Child Jesus
Holy Spirit

Several of the projects also include more advanced steps for more eager young artists. An appendix offers a number of smaller pictures to decorate the larger projects - including birds, butterflies, flowers and more.

The spiral binding is much appreciated because the book lies perfectly flat, leaving the artist with both hands to work on his project.

This is a completely new book from Catholic Heritage Curricula's previous book with the same title.
