Colouring Birds by Sally MacLarty


Colouring Birds by Sally MacLarty

This fun and educational children's colouring book includes drawings of 44 European birds to colour and learn about. It will inspire kids to explore their surroundings and discover what birds are flitting around in the trees outside their windows. Each bird is featured on a full-page with a title and a caption stating an interesting fact about it. Children can learn to identify the birds as well as get hours of entertainment colouring. The book also has four centre-pages with smaller colour images of all the birds included so children can colour in their pictures accurately if they want to. The drawings are detailed, but accessible and include woodpeckers, thrushes, ducks, finches, waders, owls and sparrows.
