WHAT I LOVE:
I found How to Draw a Clam on the shelves of our local used bookstore, and the minute I opened it, I HAD to bring it home. Filled with drawing prompts, adventure prompts, and games, this book is entirely unlike any book you’ve seen before. What struck me is how Joy Sikorski teaches the reader, without ever explicitly saying so, how to improvise your way through life. Flipping through this small book infuses my day with spontaneity and joy.
A delightfully engaging cornucopia of things to do when on vacation–or when dreaming of being on vacation–for children of all ages, including adults.
How to Draw a Clam takes you anywhere you want to go with creativity imagination and a terrific sense of fun. It offers short escapes (open a suitcase filled with sand, remove shoes and socks, wiggle toes in sand) and longer trips (take a nice walk). A whimsical survey examines the various types of vacations, from the adventurous to the vegetative. Possible accommodations are also considered: hotel, friend’s couch, under a boat on a moonlit beach.
How to Draw a Clam presents short tutorials on drawing deserts, cowfish, flip-flops, and more, and discusses exotic destinations, including beach resorts, ski resorts, and Ohio.
