I had mentioned earlier about starting a "trading post". Since I'm starting
it I get to set the rules! :-)
All trades need to be between the two interested parties - let's not flood
the list with "me toos". Include your e-mail and what you might be
interested in trading for. NO FLAMES! If there are any problems work it out
between you. Be honest about your trades and have fun with it. The way I
look at it - I have gotten all the use I can out of these books and now it's
someone else's turn to get some good out of them.

Now here goes:
Primary Age Books:
* Little Kids Can.... Draw! a Teacher's Friend Publication. This book has
simple how to draw ideas, patterns for tracing (small motor skills), and
finish the picture coloring sheets.

primary students. Worksheets, basic skills
* Draw... Then WRITE an Evan-Moor Publication. This book has step-by-step
drawing lessons along with sentences to incorporate writing in the art

reproductions are used to inspire projects.

resource books, picture books, artworks (yes, even your own!), stuff I may
