An excellent source of nature illustrations for artists and craftspeople, this delightful coloring book can also be used as an accurate, inexpensive nature identification guide.

These are very nice coloring books. They are beautifully illustrated, slightly educational, and they even include colored examples of where and what colors you should choose. But I felt disappointed that they were so thin. I would not have minded paying a little more for a nice coloring book with allot more pages. With that being said, I can only give them 4 stars, less stars for less pages.
