When I was a boy in elementary school I read many great books:
Nate the Great by Marjorie Sharmat
The Soup Series (esp. Soup and Me) by Robert Newton Peck
The Ed Emberley Drawing Books
Ed’s books are great. They teach young people without a lot of fine motor skill to draw cute yet real characters and to populate an entire world. My favorite was his Draw A World.
Ed’s joy spreading endavor continues in modern media at his website.
