From the purplish gray of a Barking Frog to the pink and orange blotches of a Gila Monster, coloring your own field guide is the most enjoyable way to learn about reptiles and amphibians. Each drawing is accompanied by a brief description that educates as it entertains. Place the new color stickers next to the drawings for a visual reference while coloring. Coloring the drawings helps reinforce the color, image, and shape of each reptile or amphibian, improving your memory and perception while offering a pleasant and easy way to learn. Fun for adults as well as children, beginning and experienced naturalists alike.
Coloring is fun! It can be even more fun when you’re learning something while coloring. Each drawing in this coloring book has a colored sticker to match so that you can place the sticker next to the drawing. While you color, you can refer to the sticker to color each reptile or amphibian realistically. Covering nearly 190 species, this is the most comprehensive coloring book on reptiles and amphibians available when it’s finished it becomes a field guide you’ve created yourself, making it truly meaningful and educational.
