Nature Readers

My 8 year old is loving the Usborne, "First Nature Reader" and James Herriot's "Animal Stories". Every few days I have him do a drawing from the reading. I loved this one:

My 3 year old just loves to draw monsters. His wall above his bed is decorated with monsters; why this doesn't give him nightmares I don't know. This was his cow monster. I'd love to understand the inspiration.


  1. Hey! Visiting from MBC and following your blog now!
    very good drawing! My 4 yr. old draws very well and I hope she contines to enjoy it!

    God bless!

  2. Came over to take a peek because I saw your comment in the 5MFSN sidebar. What talented little kiddos you have -- love the drawings!

    I have a 7-year-old and a 3-year-old and we homeschool too, in large part due to ongoing medical issues with our eldest. You're right -- keeping the schedule straight with all those doctor appointments can be quite a challenge.

    Anyway, just thought I'd drop by and say "hi" and invite you to link up your childrens' lovely artwork at 5MFSN's Magic Marker Monday -- quite the little artists you have there!
