The Painting-In Book: 30 Paint and Play Activities 
By Anna Rumsby | Publisher: Laurence King

Can you give the gorilla a jungle to hide in? Can you create some honeycomb for the bees? And can you mix up some delicious flavours of ice cream? Create paint masterpieces, with nothing more than your poster paints and Anna Rumsby's entertaining activity pages. A great big book of painting fun! Also contains an introduction to mixing colours and simple, easy-to-copy painting techniques. BUY IT ON AMAZON

Review: This book is huge! It has pictures on each page so it's not a normal colouring book. It also teaches you how to mix colours. My sister also loves this colouring book. I only wish there were more pizza pages in this book.
