Bye-Bye, Big Bad Bullybug: 07/15/08
As a child I was nuts about drawing (still am) and one of my favorite authors was Ed Emberley. He has written a number of drawing books that make drawing just about anything simple. I spent hours of my childhood pouring over his books at my grandmother's dining room table.
I have bought copies of some of his books for my kids but Bye-Bye, Big Bad Bullybug! was Sean's choice. As you can imagine, I was thrilled when he picked that book out.
The book is part story and part drawing how-to. The bully bug describes to a smaller bug all the different ways he's equipped to eat the bug. In the course of his description he is drawn, shape by shape just as all Ed Emberley drawing books teach drawing from basic shapes.
Sean and I enjoyed reading the book and even drew our own bully bug for one of his Friday lunch bags. I've included a photograph to show our result.
Those books are wonderful - our grandchildren love them and they're so educational - not that kids today aren't forward enough :)"
My son said he picked it because it was colorful and silly. Thanks for stopping by."
Oh my gosh, How cute! I've actually been looking for a book for me. My little one is always wanting me to draw pictures with her and let me tell you I'm not very good at it. LOL!! Thanks for the review. I think I'll go and pick this book up."
You can't go wrong with Ed Emberley's books."
