Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Learn to Draw for Kids is an eBook aimed at teaching kids to draw a variety of cartoon figures (on paper). It has 15 different characters, including a snake, a koala, and a strawberry. Kids select a character and then flip through pages to see how the character was drawn. There is a narrator who reads the text for each page. It should be noted that the narrator (and author) is Australian, so occasionally the spelling or name of a word may be different than you might expect.
Is it any good?
LEARN TO DRAW FOR KIDS presents step-by-step instructions for drawing 15 different characters. The app has no animation or even highlighting of newly drawn areas so it's only marginally better than looking at a complete drawing. The narration doesn't usually add much information beyond what already appears on the screen, missing the opportunity to explain a bit about perspective or how to convey movement. In the end, it's just a so-so app that misses the boat on how to be great.
