Timberdoodle's review
Do you have an aspiring architect in your home? Archi-doodle: An Architect's Activity Book is a brainy, interactive way to learn about architecture. Bursting with a collection of beautiful and elegant drawings, including numerous examples by major architects, it will challenge your older child to complete a variety of tasks, from designing a beach hut to determining a location for an island house or creating a new look for Buckingham Palace.

Designed for the child that loves architecture, Archi-doodle introduces a large range of significant architectural subjects, such as the importance of site and materials, how to furnish a space, how to read plans, how to create sustainable cities, and so on. It will inspire your child to draw remarkable and appealing buildings he otherwise might not have designed.

Not a textbook nor anything of that ilk, Archi-Doodle is an enjoyable book to jumpstart your child’s creativity. Each page explores a different theme on the subject of architecture: types of buildings, building elements, environments, spaces, and so much more, in no particular order. Plus your child can begin Archi-Doodle without knowing anything about architecture and end it by designing an actual “award he would be happy to receive” because he has completed the book – fun! Archi-Doodle will provide your child with a broad introduction to architecture in a very illuminating way. Because of the complexity of the assignments in Archi-Doodle, we suggest this book for ages 10 and older.

Very, Very Tiny Disclaimer
Note, on the page that shows beach hut architecture, there is what could appear to be a sketch of a topless woman. Given that this sketch is smaller than your smallest fingernail, our review team concluded that it was not a reason to reject this otherwise superb book, but we would all be more comfortable with the addition of some permanent marker clothing.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2017 Seventh-Grade Curriculum Kit!

My son has really been January 4, 2016
Reviewer: Anna J.  
My son has really been into drawing and art for about two years, and this book has been the perfect challenge for him to continually improve his skills. His eyes really light up when I tell remind him that one of his school subjects is to work on a page in the Archi-Doodle book. This pairs well w/ the Tripluse Triangular Fineliner Pens.
