I love this book. Someone gave it to me for my birthday, and I've made so many cute cards and letters for kids and adults. A really creative way to make art that anyone with fingers (or toes) can do!

I love the simple fingerprint animals and characters All you need besides that is to know how to draw simple lines, curves and zigzags. Very empowering for simple art.
