KIRKUS REVIEW

Included under this head, because children from six up should be able to carry out the instructions for the use of this novel sort of drawing and tracing book, while almost no children under third grade would be able to read the instructions to themselves. An ingenious method for making a rather complicated picture, through tracing successive key plates on a transparency, and following this by painting according to a carefully planned chart. From the figure of the American eagle, on through the statue of Lincoln, Liberty, the Capitol and so on, this book includes various things that mean something in the United States of America. Good gift for convalescents.
