About the book

From the purplish gray of a Barking Frog to the pink and orange blotches of a Gila Monster, coloring your own field guide is the most enjoyable way to learn about reptiles and amphibians. Each drawing is accompanied by a brief description that educates as it entertains. Place the new color stickers next to the drawings for a visual reference while coloring. Coloring the drawings helps reinforce the color, image, and shape of each reptile or amphibian, improving your memory and perception while offering a pleasant and easy way to learn. Fun for adults as well as children, beginning and experienced naturalists alike.
