This exciting coloring book, documenting the flora and fauna of the African plains, will thrill colorists and nature lovers alike. Forty-one realistic scenes (including four double-page spreads), meticulously researched and accurately rendered by artist Dianne Gaspas-Ettl, depict a variety of wild animals in their natural habitats. Included are ready-to-color illustrations of a magnificent giraffe at a water hole, a matriarch and herd of African elephants, a cheetah with its young on an abandoned termite mound, a yellow-winged bat amid the blossoms of the baobab tree, village weaverbirds' nests hanging from umbrella acacia, and much more. Descriptive captions accompany each illustration, identifying subjects by common and Latin names and briefly describing the environment.
