New Zealand Extinct Wildlife to Read, Colour and Keep
|Series:||Read, Colour and Keep|
A welcome new addition to an excellent activity book series, New Zealand Extinct Wildlife to Read, Colour and Keep has great appeal for younger children. It features 30 simple black and white illustrations of New Zealand's most remarkable extinct wildlife; including dinosaurs, birds, lizards, mammals and more, ready to be coloured in. Dave Gunson's fascinating facts and true-to-life pictures provide the ideal introduction to New Zealand's prehistoric wildlife. Read: Each page carries a sentence or two of basic introductory text alongside a traceable black-and-white line illustration. Colour: An A4 double-page colour insert shows a guide to the realistic colour and markings of each creature. Keep: Every illustration page is perforated so that children can remove and display their finished artwork.
