This book is just AMAZING and my boys and I love it !
What is it ?
It is a book with 24 cards to colour and 24 envelopes to fold and colour + 24 stickers to close the envelopes. It is all about Summer so you will find illustrations with: bees, butterflies, fish, sea creatures, shells, summer flowers.
How does it work ?
The back of the front cover explains how to fold the envelopes with very simple pictures.
In the first part of the book, you will find the cards. They are 2 per page and are really easy to separate. The grooves are very well marked so the children can fold the cards completely independently. The main illustration to colour is on the front.
Inside there is some space to write your text and some illustrations you can colour as well.
On the back, there is a lovely design to enhance the name of the card’s author.
In the second part of the book, there are the envelopes illustrated outside AND inside ! So you can colour the 10000 little fish inside the envelopes if you wish and after 24 hours spent colouring your 10000 fish, you will fold the envelope easily and in less than 1 minute. It will be time to put your card in your lovely envelope and close it with a sticker you will find in the last page of the book.
