African Wild Flowers: To Read, Colour and Keep – interesting facts and hours of fun for children
More about the book!
African Wild Flowers: To Read, Colour and Keep by Sally MacLarty is out now from Penguin Random House.
Colouring-in is a favourite children’s pastime, and here’s a new addition to Struik Nature’s ‘Read, Colour and Keep’ series that will give hours of fun, while also expanding children’s knowledge of the natural world.
Why is Bulbine such a useful plant? Which flowers can we eat, and which are poisonous? What is South Africa’s national flower? Why do some flowers give off a rotten smell? Who pollinates our beautiful flowers?
Children will learn interesting facts while enjoying hours of fun colouring in this selection of our most striking flowers. They can consult the colour guide in the middle of the book when choosing which shade of crayon or paint to use for the more than 40 outlined images – or make up their own fantastically-hued flowers!
