African Birds To Read, Colour & Keep

Recommended Price 
December 2006
About the book: 

Why does the African Jacana have long toes? What colour is the Cape Parrot? Which bird feasts on wild figs? And where does the Diderick Cuckoo lay its eggs? 

Children will find the answers to these questions - and lots more interesting facts - while enjoying hours of fun colouring in a selection of our most beautiful birds.

There are more than 40 to colour in, helping budding artists and young children learn something about each as they work through the title. In the middle of the title is a gallery of all the birds, but this time in colour, giving a clear guide as to which crayons or paints to use when colouring in the outlines on the other pages.
