to republish a book by Marina Ozerova.

The book is dedicated to the phenomenon of children’s drawings and treats it as a psychologically important aspect of child development. The author talks about different stages that children’s drawings go through, identifying the relationship between the age of the “artist” and the way he expresses the world through his drawings.

The practical chapters contain a great number of tips, advice, and ideas for adults who wish to develop and support creative potential of their child, without imposing visual patterns.

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.»
