BOOK REVIEW - PENCIL DRAWING

Books are the best friends . This is my first post on a Book review . I love to read reviews and wished to write on my own . But still am in the learning steps for a writing a review about books.
Our New year celebrations were too hectic , as we were packing stuff for our UK trip ....cleaning up the kitchen ,.....whole house . We didnt get time to present gift ourself . But , then came a surprise from my hubby , after settling down in UK .



This book was gifted by my hubby . What a beautiful and wonderful gift to start a new year !!! . That's really a lovely gift which needs to be treasured .

This book will be definetly loved by all the art lovers . Drawing lessons are absolutely simple and good .

It is a good choice for beginners and kids . My daughter loves to sketch on her own . We started with drawing her picture .


I tried drawing with this flying elephant for my daughter .
