NOTE: THIS IS A COLOURING IN BOOK This wonderful bumper-size colouring-in book for children features simple black and white illustrations of wildlife from our present environment as well as the distant past, all ready to be coloured in. Each is accompanied by a sentence or two of basic explanatory text, and a full-colour insert will guide aspiring young artists as to natural markings and features, though as Dave says, it's just as much fun making up your own colour schemes! And the pages are even perforated, so that the completed drawings can be easily removed from the book and displayed with pride for friends and family to see. It's the perfect activity book to keep the children busy over the holiday season, and they'll love learning all about the creatures and plants of our natural world as they colour them in.
