Hello and Salam (Peace be upon you) fellow readers ?
I wanted to share a really cool book I recently purchased for my 7 year old, who has shown liking for writing and drawing ‘story books and comics’.
BY USBORNE BOOK
It is a book slash workbook for kids who want to develop skills on how to write their own comics. It teaches about the guidelines on how to start a comic story, draw characters, create speech bubbles and actions.
Has 96 Pages of which the last couple of pages are Stickers. It has 42 pages of Comic boxes to make your own comic story.
The book starts off with explaining how to use it. Then there are examples of Pre-written Comics. How to plot your story and make up your characters. How to draw the characters as well as step-by-step instructions on how to draw them from shapes and lines. I found that to be such an amazing source since my son often asks me how to draw certain characters.
There are writing prompts of a few different types of comic stories of different topics.
2 features I absolutely adore is that this book is very colorful and filled with creative prompts to keep the young reader engaged and it has spiral bound so your kid can lay it fully flat and write/draw.
The book is made with excellent quality semi gloss paper. Hard cover.
Easy to follow for kids from 6 and up.
If you have an advanced reader and writer at home then maybe even age 5 can be a great start!
I am glad there are companies like Usborne who make such amazing books for kids who are creative and curious like mine! I wish i had such books when i was a kid.
I am homeschooling and having this “do it yourself book/workbook” really adds as a bonus when i am busy with cooking or my toddlers. My son can just follow along and work on it.
**I purchased this book from Amazon Canada with my own money and it is not a sponsored post.**
