I think I was expecting more instruction or how to when I first opened the doodle book. Instead I found that each page has a joke on it and then a partially drawn picture. There are instructions on each page asking the kids to complete the picture by doodling whatever subject is being talked about in the joke. I think that as my daughter becomes better at drawing, this book will be even more fun. The age range for this book is 9-12 year olds.
So if you're looking for a fun gift for the aspiring artist in your family, pick up a copy of Rob Elliott's Laugh Out Loud Doodles for Girls. There is also a Laugh Out Loud Pocket Doodles for Boys book too.
