The second edition of the book expands the practical chapters, providing even more tips, hints and ideas for adults who would like to develop and sustain creativity of their children without forcing any stereotypes upon them.
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.
