This wonderful children's activity book features 30 simple black & white illustrations of native New Zealand birds, ready to be coloured in, accompanied by a sentence or two of basic introductory text about each bird (aimed at 4-7-year-olds). The very talented illustrator Dave Gunson traces the outlines of selected birds from his All About Birds book, adding a few basic details in thick lines - ensuring birds are easy for young children to colour and recognise. A 4-colour double-page insert will guide children as to the birds' natural markings.
