Two New Books from Sterling Publishing Encourages Children to Explore the World of Animals and Their Own Artistic Talents


Thank you to Sterling Publishing for providing complimentary product samples for us to base this review upon. All opinions expressed are my own.

Animals Everywhere: A Pop-Up Adventure is new children’s book from Sterling Publishing. This hardcover book recommended for ages 4 and up takes an in-depth look at over 100 animals from both land and sea and even features 3-dimensional looks at some of them via the amazing pop-ups. These pop-ups are very cool and my kids were surprised at how many details they had. The story was great and the animals facts were interesting as well. This book is sure to be a favorite in your child’s personal library and would be a fun gift idea as an alternative to toys.

My 6 ½ year old son, Quinn, is quite a little artist, so when I saw Craft-A-Doodle: 75 Creative Exercises from 18 Artists, I knew it would be right up his alley. This book takes you on a crafty journey with short intros and prompts that get you doodling, painting, and using your creative skills. Some of these exercises are great for adults, some for children, and every age in between. Quinn loved trying out different styles of art and learning a little bit as well.


Sterling Publishing’s newest books are great additions to our home library and we’ve really enjoyed reading them. Both books are available at many major retailers such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com. Animals Everywhere: A Pop-Up Adventure retails for approximately $14.95 and Craft-A-Doodle retails for $19.95.
