This week you were home from school for a while because of Hurricane Sandy. It was just too windy here to go outside on Tuesday, so we decided to pile on the couch to watch The Lorax.
We had seen it this summer while at a library program and enjoyed it a lot. When the movie was over, JSL wanted to go back to a craft activity. While we went off to do that, you watched some of the extra features on the DVD. One was learning to draw the characters from the movie. The only reason I knew was because you came asking for paper, pencils, and a clipboard. You were busy for a long time and I knew you were listening carefully to the instructions. Later on, I went over to your drawing and was very impressed.
You have shown an appreciation for step-by-step drawing books and videos. It really is fun to see them at the end and realize how you have worked to get to that point in the drawing. I can’t not wait to see more in the future with all of your other drawing books.
