Ralph Masiello’s Robot Drawing Book is a great book for an artistic science lover. Masiello combines easy to draw robots with whimsical names and colors to bring each piece to life.
While this book is recommended for ages 6-9, anyone looking for some fun drawing projects will love this book. The Robot Drawing Book has 10 robots and many miscellaneous parts to draw. Each piece has simple and easy to read instructions that clearly show you what the next step is.
There is also a finished robot by each step-by-step tutorial. Underneath the robots is a list of materials Ralph used to color in the robot with. Each robot has a quirky name and a funny catch phrase to go with it. Don’t worry if your drawing looks nothing like the one in the book. It’s all about the experience, right?
