"Evolution: A Coloring Book" is a playbook on the subject of natural evolution that expands the traditional conventions of coloring books and invites readers to immerse themselves in the interactive elements of the book. In addition to coloring the pages, there are stencils, a map of Pangea that can be opened, dinosaur eggs that hatch, fossils hiding inside rocks and pages that can be mixed and matched to create hybrid images. Accessible to readers of all ages, "Evolution" also boasts tactile features, such as flaps to lift and die-cut holes. Text on each page explains the concepts of natural selection and describes the evolution of life. Printed on heavy card, beautifully packaged and featuring Finnish illustrator Annu Kilpelainen's dexterous use of pattern and detail, this is a great gift book on a fascinating subject.
