Kindergarten Drawing Birds with Mona Brooks

We had fun combining shapes and simple lines to create these beautiful pencil drawings of birds perched in a tree complete with leaves and berries. This drawing lesson come from the book "Teaching Children to Draw" by Mona Brooks. This is a great resource for parents and for teachers. The children are so excited when they finish their picture and see what they have drawn. This is a favorite lesson for both teachers and students.
