New Zealand Shore & Sea Life to Read, Colour & Keep
The third title in an excellent colouring book series, New Zealand Shore and Sea Life to Read, Colour and Keep will appeal to children aged 4-7 years old. It features 30 simple black and white illustrations of seals, whales, sea birds, fish and seashore life, ready to be coloured-in.
Each illustration is accompanied by a sentence or two of basic explanatory text. Talented artist Dave Gunson traces the outlines of selected birds, fish, animals and plants from his All About books, adding a few basic details in thick lines, so that they are easy for children to colour and recognise.
A double-page colour insert shows the natural colours and markings of the outlines featured in the book, however aspiring young artists will have fun choosing their own colour schemes.
