Description

Animals under the sea and up in the air fly and swim on the pages of these not-your-average coloring books (see also Count and Color: Fly). Young artists will have a splash coloring in beautiful block prints of an amazing array of sea creatures and airborne animals - and will strengthen counting skills, learn a little about printmaking, and pick up a few fancy collective nouns, to boot - e.g., Is that a "tangle" of octopuses? A "parliament" of owls? How many dolphins are in a "pod"? Kids can count and color them all! These ideal quiet- or travel-time activity books provide absorbing, portable play for waiting rooms, plane rides, car trips, or restaurants (here's something fun to do while the grown-ups are finishing their coffee). There are high-flying, swim-tastic discoveries on every page!
