The book in dust jacket


Drawing is not just a popular creative outlet for children, though it is valuable in this respect as well. It is a way of expressing oneself without words, a story of feelings that are yet difficult to grasp, an immediate broadcast of inner mood with the help of art.During the whole preschool age—from birth and up until a child is six—seven years old—the speech is not yet developed well enough for him or her to articulate and clearly communicate his or her feelings. Drawing gives children a chance to paint their mood, their attitude towards something, to relive a pleasant event or to rid of negative emotions.»
