Learning By Drawing Amazing Animals – Basic Word Types by Colin M. Drysdale. Dr Colin has many animal friends. In this book, you’ll find amusing descriptions of what some of these animals look like, what they like to wear and what they get up to. By reading these descriptions and then drawing pictures of these animals, you will learn about the different word types you need to use to make your own writing come to life. At the end, you’ll get a chance to put what you have learned into practice by imagining an animal that Dr Colin might like to have as a pet and writing a description of it.
