Gr 3 Up–This cute, easy guide to drawing Kawaii doodles explains how to recreate a wide variety of characters and objects. The book is divided into categories, which include People (largely focused on faces, and including sections on different facial expressions and hairstyles); Bodies (including people in different poses and clothing types); Animals; Insects; Sea Creatures; Kawaii Characters (like Ice Cream Man and Mr. Acorn); Animal Characters (like Fluffy Rabbit and Plush Pig); Clothes; Stylish Items (including headbands, hats, purses, and glasses); Furnishings; Food; Dessert; Fruits and Vegetables; and Seasons and Holidays. There are also instructions for making gifts such as greeting cards and gift wrap, as well as drawing cute lettering and frames. A table of contents and list of recommended supplies is included. Each drawing instruction is presented on a half-page, and includes an indication of the level of difficulty (easy, average, difficult), suggestions for coloring the drawing, and possible variations. The book offers a wide variety of ways to adapt the drawings by adding different clothing, accessories, and facial expressions. Each instruction is broken down into four steps, which means that some steps require readers to draw more elements than others depending on how complex the final picture is, but most of the shapes and designs are fairly simple to recreate.
VERDICT This fun, easy-to-follow Kawaii drawing guide will have wide appeal among kids and tweens.
