At the moment Chloe is super keen on anything to do with drawing and colouring in. She’s suddenly discovered a real love of it and will spend huge amounts of time carefully choosing her colours and doing her work to the very best of her ability (and getting suitably cross with herself if she makes a mistake.) The latest offering from best selling children’s author & illustrator Yasmeen Ismail, “Draw & Discover” activity books are aimed at inquisitive children age 4-7 and I was sure they would appeal to Chloe.
Due for release at the start of February, the Draw and Discover series features two books “Push, Pull, Empty, Full” and “Inside, Outside, Upside Down” – each book features simple text and instructions to guide children on an adventure through 30 fun colour and drawing activities.
As it turns out the Draw & Discover books are a hit with both Ben and Chloe. I love that they give both structure and freedom – sometimes a blank piece of paper to write or draw on can be a bit daunting. The Draw & Discover series gives you some guidance to get you going but your only limit after that is your own imagination! (Or in my case a complete lack of artistic talent!)
