Drawing Books!

One of my favorite authors of all time is Ed Emberly. His books are amazing and are always filled with shapes, letters and numbers. I happen to own many of his drawing books which I keep in the art area of the classroom. The children LOVE these books! Please check out his website! www.edemberley.com

Right now we are learning about Dinosaurs so we have the drawing book which is actually written by Ed Emberly's son, Michael available for the children. http://www.michaelemberley.com/books/dinosaurs

These books provide an awareness of colors, shapes, forms, and lines which children observe and try to replicate. What a great way for children to develop their perceptual abilities and gain fine motor skills at the same time! : )
