Mona Brookes, art educator, has several books about this subject. In
"Drawing with Children" she has specific examples of early childhood
drawing before and after her detailed lessons. She also acknowledges the
need to allow students to continue with their symbolic scribbles as they
need to do this for verbal linguistic development, etc. In a nutshell, she
makes her students aware of essential lines and shapes, naming these so the
student can identifiy them in their various combination in the external
world. They then look at the subject, identify lines and shapes and render
them as proportionately as possible. Most drawing systems are based on some
variation of this approach. Mona Brookes has formalized the process into a
copywrited system
