How to Draw Harry Potter Step-by-Step Book: Easy Drawing Lessons for Kids to Learn to Draw Harry Potter

by Roy Lichter

So, why learn to draw? Drawing is arguably as important and essential a skill as learning literacy and mathematics. When a child learns to draw, they are encouraged to do two things. The first is to look at the world around them – they begin to understand the connections between color and shape, form and perspective, dimensions and relations.

The second is to look within themselves. Once a child learns how to draw, they are able to express themselves in a unique and fascinating way. Every individual has a very different imagination and a particular creative process, even from a young age – however they need a way to vent this imagination and creativity. Learning to draw is the perfect way to do this.

Moreover, the better your child becomes at a skill like drawing, the more easily they will be able to express themselves. That is why this book is the perfect guide to the techniques needed in the earliest stages of drawing. Not only will it teach them the basics but more importantly they will have fun whilst they are learning.

In no time at all you are sure to see your child’s ability go from strength to strength, which will be an incredibly rewarding process for them but also for you!

The Dawn of a New Eden (5 Books Full Series Bundle)

by Geniuz Gamer

The Dawn of a New Eden (5 Books Full Series Bundle)

Short storyline

Book One: A Rude Awakening

Eden is a young woman who is used to hard work and manual labor, someone who strives to be the best in everything she does. She brings this to her family farm, and her parents have taught her to be a strong, independent woman who doesn’t need a man to take care of her. This works out well, because her parents die early under suspicious circumstances, leading her on a journey to find who was responsible for her parents’ demise.

An Enderman promises to lead her to the ones responsible, if only she would do one favor in return. She must track down and kill a creeper. She will also come up against zombies, spiders, skeletons and even a few snow Golems that will stand in her way, but she will not be alone on this journey, taking on assistance from twin warriors Ron and Sean, who have their own agenda in helping Eden.

Book Two: A Warrior Lost

After the death of her parents, Eden found herself in a life and death struggle with skeletons, and soon had two warriors coming to her aid. Ron and Sean were identical twins, well known in their field of battle and from their conquests of various villages. She felt lucky to have them on her side.

First they have to track down a lady named Thamus, as she was the one who warned the brothers that Eden was in trouble. She is cryptic about what she has to say, passing on a red Emerald that was said to be extinct.

Book Three: A Warrior Found

Their journey takes them to a woman that knows more than she says, but compounds the issue by using riddles to get her point across. Sean is still injured and in need of medical help, and they eventually find themselves in a mob village that is more than welcoming. They soon find out that their compassionate side is not as it seems, as they are drugged and put into a bunker with zombies. If they don’t find a way out, this will be their final resting place, and the end of their journey.

Book Four: Life Goes On

Ron and Eden barely escape the jaws of death from zombies, finding their way back to Sean, and then distracting the mob village, so that they can get away without being noticed. They are not far from the cave where the creeper is found, when they fall through the ice and land into a world of death and spiders. They are pursued by these spiders, and end up in a sort of quicksand, which soon finds its way over their bodies and now they are fighting for the very breath that they breathe.

Book Five: Uneasy Alliances

Eden and her two warriors find themselves back where they began this journey. At first everything looks perfectly normal, and it has been explained to her that she had had a horrible head injury. This doesn’t seem right to Eden, who along with the two brothers had started to see visions that aren’t there. They eventually figure out what is going on and find themselves back in the grasp of the spiders. Once out of that life and death struggle, they now face the leader of the mob village and subsequently the creeper that lies ahead of them.
