If First Drawings could go to every school board in the country, perhaps there would be less enthusiasm for dropping art from the curriculum, currently the favorite item to cut as unnecessary . . . Sylvia Fein writes without sentimentality or cant- theres not a word of jargon in the book. She can describe the most intricate designs with economy, wit, and insight, teaching us to look and look again. She is an informed guide -- you feel shes explored every cave and rockface on earth -- whose expository style could be a model for anyone who wants to tell us something important. -- Ann E. Berthoff, Author of The Sense of Learning and Forming/Thinking/Writing
