The Wonders of Nature Sketchbook

A beautiful book authored by Colleen Monroe and illustrated by Michael Glenn Monroe (a husband and wife team).

I recently learned about this book (one of several they’ve produced) at a trade show in east TN and had the opportunity to meet Michael, who was kind enough to give me a signed copy for review.  (Thanks again, Michael!)

Here are a few of my favorite things when looking more closely at this book:

  • It offers drawing tips and step by step instructions on many birds, reptiles, and mammals.
  • It’s not just an ordinary drawing book but a nature study that includes interesting facts and details about each animal illustrated.
  • This learning tool also shows us how we can hurt wildlife and has suggested ways to help.

My favorite drawing in the book.

I love the touch of humor as the concerned duck family watches the startled duck dropping from his home.

After appreciating the talent represented in these pages I was inspired to attempt a drawing.  Although it is in need of work, it does look like a frog.  (Just don’t look too closely!)

Thank you Colleen and Michael.  This book is sure to be enjoyed in our home and others!
