Could that be a red spotted giraffe I see in the foreground, with a bluebird on his back? A happy Koala? An ebullient elephant?
I couldn’t blow up the pic to see if the little brown guys on the zoo sign were monkeys or not…
Very bright, colorful, happy picture 😀
An elephant on the right, a monkey in the midle, a giraffe (?) on the left. I first thought the blue animal was a parrot but the legs are a bit long and it seems to have ears.
I agree with Ilana-Davita – From left to right: bird, giraffe, monkey, and elephant.
Also, the zoo sign seems to be decorated with brown footprints.
And kol hakavod to your daughter, whose pictures get more sophisticated all the time!
Thanks for the responses!
The daughter has spoken: it’s a bird, a giraffe, a lion and an elephant. And the brown marks at top are either footprints or a design. Or both.
I mentioned the ears on the bird, and she said, with hands clasped to her face, “I forgot.” I told her don’t worry about it.
Maybe you could tell her about poetic license. I loved drawing and painting until my art teacher made fun of me in front of the class – I was 10 at the time – because I had painted a sky ultramarine.
I agree with Mrs.S. that hr drawings are becoming more sophisticated.
I agree that one can intimidate a child by criticizing them in front of a class! Speaking of art teachers, I should really send this post to her art teacher. They did a segment on animals recently, and I think this drawing is the result of some of those efforts.
I am sure her teacher would be delighted. we enjoy feedback and not only when it is negative.
I think I see a parrot, a giraffe, an elephant and a monkey. OH, I now see the answers and the lion is NOT a monkey. Of course not, silly me!
Hey, others thought it was a monkey, too…
Thanks for playing along!
I do feel “shep nachas.” She’s getting better all the time!
Oh, cool, though “shep” is a verb. So maybe it should be:
“I do shep nachas.” 🙂
This is really a great drawing and I am sorry I got here late…My favorite is the bird and I love that she added ears because of course birds can hear… Michelle
Left to right…bird, giraffe, a thin bear, elephant.
