I love wickedly cool books for kids at a great price. Books make amazing Christmas gifts as they can be read over and over, shared with other siblings. They can also be highly educational while remaining fun. This Scratch & Sketch Dragons & Mythical Creatures book was $21.95 and is now on sale for just $6.50 with free shipping (no minimum) at Chapters Indigo now.
This book is designed for children ages and up. The book contains the stories of 20 mythical creatures. Your child can copy the sketches of the creatures and scratch at the black coating on each page to reveal patterns, swirls, holographic colours and more. Draw your own animals and scratch away the black pages to reveal the secrets underneath.
This booklet has 60 pages. They are broken down into three different types of pages with 20 pages of each. There are 20 illustrated pages, 20 sketch pages, and 20 scratch-off pages. There is no 'trace-by-line' portion to this book (like others have been), so your child should feel comfortable drawing simple images by him or herself. The wire-o bound hardcover book makes it easy for your child to draw inside.
Now, I price compared this book with other online retails and I am 100% certain that you are getting the best price. The same book costs $12.99 @ Amazon Canada (only three left), $12.99 @ DeSerres Canada, and $15.50 @ Book Depository. Check out some of the reviews on Amazon Canada to see why parents love giving this book and kids love receiving it.
If you are looking for a fantastic and unique Christmas gift, this is pretty awesome. It can be giving to kids and adults alike, though it is designed for children. Personally, I wouldn't mind receiving one of these books myself. My drawing skills actually royally suck, but there is no time like the present to improve them.
This book is part of a series of Scratch & Sketch books that you can find at bookstores across Canada. They usually retail for $13 and up, but I will be watching for others to go on sale as well. If you are familiar with these books, drop us a like and let us know what you think of them!
