Bill Zimmerman - Your Life in Comics and Pocket Doodles for Young Artists

I received 2 books by Bill Zimmerman to review and although the books are different the concept is the same. The book Pocket Doodles for Young Artists is great for a young child (I would say about 7 and up) to use their imagination.  The thing I really like about this is that it starts it off for your budding artist but then it can be taken anyway the imagination wants to go.....and they are "unplugged"...yup...good old fashion imagination!  You don't have to be a great drawer just someone who likes to doodle and this is such an integral part of childhood.  I loved to doodle in my notebooks...usually during my classes ;)  Shhh..don't tell Savvy!

The second book is for a slightly older child but again a great concept.  Your Life in Comics 100 Things for Guys to Write and Draw is a comic strip that is started for you and the artist finishes the strip.  It is geared towards boys but I am not one to not give a girl a toy that is geared to boys. The stories come from your own life...what a cool idea!
