I was given a Scratch and Draw Enchanted Animals book from The Quarto Group to give my honest review and to offer to my readers as a giveaway. No compensation was received.
I originally thought all my children would love having this book, but once I got it, I realized only my tweens and teens would be the ones to really enjoy this book. On the right hand page, there would be a drawing, and on the left hand page there would be a page with the scratch off dark metallic coating. The basic idea is that you can scratch off the coating with the included stylus trying to follow the drawing that is on the left hand side or you can make your own personalized scratch art drawing if desired. I feel like this book would be too difficult for my younger kids. This book is targeted to adults who would like to do this kind of art for a period of relaxation.
I found a drawing that was not extremely hard and tried my hand at it. I actually was able to create a reasonable likeness to the original drawing in a short amount of time. I am not much of a drawer, but I could see how it would be a relaxing, fun activity to help someone unwind after a busy day. I stopped when I got to all the flowers — I don’t know if I could do that!
The included stylus had two ends: one end was tapered to scratch off larger areas, and the other end was pointed to scratch off smaller details. The bold lines above were done with the tapered edge end.
Another nice feature of the book is that all of the pages are perforated, so the pages can be torn out to make it easier to draw on the pages or they could be torn out to display the drawings when they are done.
- Rabbits and dandelions
- Woodland raccoons
- Elegant owls,
- A whole forest worth of other enchanting wildlife.
I really liked this adult approach to Scratch and Draw art. It packs easily for long trips, and it can be worked on in a person’s free moments. There are many other options for these type of books that can be found HERE and HERE.
