The Coloring book
Based on the real chateau, located in Aix-en-Provence, France, the architectural miniature on which this coloring book is based is meticulously appointed down to the mini Cavalier King Charles spaniels that are the owners' pets. The text in this book is in both English and French; captions on the sketches help tell the story of this remarkable building. This coloring book is part storybook and part language lesson as well!
Not just simple line drawings, these sketches to color are made from photographs of the actual building, and retain some of the original details, shading and textures. The result is an enchanting coloring experience for older children and adults alike, especially effective with colored pencils or semi-transparent markers. We recommend this book for ages 8 and up, but we have found detail-oriented 6 and 7-year-olds enjoying it when they thought no one was looking.
