Fingerprint & Draw: Animals & Insects features 25+ different cute creatures to create with your fingerprints. Everyone can make art, no matter how small the artist!

Introduce young children to the world of art and creativity with Fingerprint & Draw: Animals & Insects! Designed to support the earliest stages of writing and drawing, the Drawing with Your Fingers series creates fun exercises for children as young as 3-years-old.

Each of the step-by-step art projects begins by showing children which fingers to use, and how to place, stick, and roll them on the page to create the perfect animal shape. Once they've made their mark, the book shows them how to add legs, ears, antennae, and other flourishes to make their animals come to life!

Fingerprint & Draw: Animals & Insects comes complete with a pull-out paper pad to easily draw alongside each exercise. Children will be so immersed creating peacocks, lions, bees, and butterflies with their fingertips, they won't realize they're developing their fine motor skills.
