Review: Amazing Animal Facts

We all know that "adult" coloring books are all the rage right now.

But what about adult coloring... post cards?

Okay, so I've got to admit that I've seen a few different colorable postcard sets floating around, but none are quite as fun and informative as this new set from author, illustrator, and architect Maja Säfström. Amazing Animal Facts is a set of 50 collectable, colorable postcards based on her book, The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts. These fun postcards feature a wide variety of animals from the seas, forests, fields, jungles, and skies. Each card, printed on easily colorable uncoated card stock, has a lovely drawing of an animal and one or more facts about said animal.

For example, "Sloths are so slow that they grow green algae on their fur."

Or, "Kangaroos are the size of a kidney bean when they are born."

Or, "Shark moms lose their appetite before giving birth so they won't be tempted to eat their own babies!"

Oh, the things you will learn from this delightful set! Cute animals, fun trivia, and stress relief from coloring? What's not to love?!

In fact, chances are good that you won't want to send any of these postcards out; you'll want to just keep them in their cute recipe-collection-style box to refer to periodically, or to place them on an end table somewhere where guests can amuse themselves with fun new factoids. This is a fun set that is sure to delight lovers of animals, lovers of art, lovers of coloring books, lovers of trivia, and more.


I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own!
