The Great Extendable Colouring Book is a fabulous idea – a book which the pages fold out so there’s enough space for more than one person to colour in. Read on to find out what we think.
The Great Extendable Colouring Book by b small books was sent to us way too long ago – and it’s fabulous. You see, H loves colouring in, but more often than not the book doesn’t stretch enough we can both colour in. Not so with the Great Extendable Colouring Book, as each page folds out so you get two extra sides of A4 of each picture – which leaves more than enough space for two of you to colour in at the same time.
So H and I have been doing that. She loves colouring in, although I’ve found she tends to rush sometimes. I feel she learns by watching other people, so I’ve been taking my time – and what actually happened was us sitting in silence both concentrating on our respective areas of the picture, but we were having fun!
The Great Extendable Colouring Book comes with seven scenes, Safari, Under the Sea, In the Jungle, In Space, Fashion Show, Sports in the Sun and Arty Street Party.
I’ve found that pencils are the nicest way of colouring – I like crayons and felt tips, but felt like it suited these books more – and it was also a good way of showing H how to use two colours on one thing (two different shades of brown on a tree trunk for example).
Each page has a small ‘can you spot’ type activity on it, and most importantly is fun! The Great Extendable Colouring Book costs £9.99 and is available from all good bookstores and Amazon.co.uk
We were sent a copy of the book for the purpose of review. All opinions are our own.
