Both of my kids LOVE to draw. They can occupy themselves for hours, creating illustrations for stories or trying to learn a new style.  Sometimes, though, they need a little inspiration.  When they start saying, “Mom, tell me something to draw”  I know that it’s time to pull out the Doodle, Imagine, Draw sketch book! 

Much like journal prompts, this sketch book provides pages with vague details or guidelines.  Kids can get as elaborate and detailed as they wish!  The paper is high-quality; it stands up to vigorous erasing and coloring.  I love the variety of ideas and quotes used in the book.  It would appeal to many different interests and age levels.  Consider it for adults, too!  Doodling can be a great way to unwind, even as you’re mulling over a big decision or project.

Another great feature of the book is that it explores various types of artistic skill.  For example, in the photo above, the page on the left asks the artist to draw from one point of view.  The adjacent page challenges the artist to consider the same scene from a different perspective.  This shift in thinking mirrors so much of what teachers try to do in the classroom.  Modeling this through art is a great way to help kids transfer knowledge and understanding.

This book is available on Amazon for $12.20.  Pair it with a set of thinline markers or coloring pencils, and it makes a super gift!

    My youngest daughter is 9 and has been looking at things and attempting to draw them. Some are pretty good so this would be a great book for her.

  2. Not being at all artistic, I could use all the help I can get.

  3. This looks like a great gift idea. I like that there are several additional drawing books by Parragon Books so once the first one is completed, a child can continue with another. I actually saw a YouTube video recently where an artist started drawing in a similar book and continued with additional books over a period of several years. She enjoyed looking through them years later.

  4. So cute! What ages do y’all think this would be best for?

  5. 150 ideas gives lots of options and things to try.

  6. The sharks book looks great. I’m glad that there are more books and shows about sharks. The more people understand them, the less likely these wonderful animals will be hunted out of fear.

  7. Looks like a very fun book.
    Thanks for the contest.

    My 12 year old daughter is an amazing artist and this book would be right up her alley. She is really into drawing Anime characters and my other kids love it too. They would definitely like this book.

  11. Stella Methvin says:

    I think its awesome. I draw, paint, create and love to explore the imagination of the kiddos every chance we get. nothing better than starting something and seeing where you end up. It like one sentence prompts. All you have to do is start and go. And a simple circle can take your drawing imagination to many new places.

  12. Jana Leah says:

    I like that there is so much you can do with this book – draw, doodle, sketch, shade, color, scribble.

  13. I’m all for anything that helps jumpstart young ones’ imaginations – better than staring at a screen!
