DRAW YOUR HAPPY: A Prompted Sketch Book Featuring Drawings by Alyza LeBlanc
A prompted drawing book by a kid for kids. We wanted to share the love of drawing in a unique and special way, and inspire kids to tap into their own creativity. The illustrator shares a short story from her childhood, along with a drawing. This is followed by a prompt for the reader to identify an inspiration from their own life to draw. We include some ideas and suggestions, then space is provided for the reader to conceptualize and create a sketch of their own.
The book was originally conceived to help kids focus on using their creative energies when facing a difficult time, whether that be illness, divorce, foster/adoption, or any type of childhood trauma. The point is to use art expression to focus on the happy things in life. This drawing book is appropriate for any young budding artist.
The drawing prompts are intended not only to offer drawing suggestions but to also help readers focus on positive thoughts and feelings.
Your child will learn how to:
✔ Express feelings and identify emotions
✔ Have a positive outlook on life
✔ Understand it is ok to make mistakes
✔ Believe they can always improve
✔ Be grateful
✔ Accept that everyone is different
✔ Better understand themselves
✔ Grow up to be mentally stronger
