Holiday Gifts – Drawing Books

EdEmberley

Ed Emberley began writing and illustrating books with step-by-step instructions for drawing people, animals and objects using a minimum of line and circle combinations in the 1970s.  Not only is he a grandfather, he is the grandfather of drawing books for kids.  Thirteen of his drawing books are still in print.  His website is fantastic.  It may take you back to your childhood.  www.edemberley.com
