    Comments about You Can Draw Anything:

    I bought this book for my 7 year old son and it is great. Easy to follow instructions and you really can draw anything! Together we sat down and drew our own faces by following the instructions and were really pleased with the recognisable faces we drew. A resource you can return to time and again and that the whole family has enjoyed.
