The brand-new sequel to a well-reviewed bestseller that has been translated into fifteen languages, this time focused on bright colors and various habitats. Every habitat in the wide world has been painted by nature’s unique color palette. The frosty polar landscape glitters with blue-white tones, the jungle dances wildly in the colors of tropical fruits, and the grassy savannah silently hides in beige and khaki. Take a walk with us through the farthest places and discover colors that are connected to them. With our book, you’ll have them right in front of you! Throughout this colorful adventure, you will imagine all sorts of sounds, tastes, and smells. Can you hear the mud bubbling silently right in the middle of the bog? And do you feel the sun warming up every stone in the desert? We had better cool ourselves down in the ocean! And after a walk, whenever you want, you can learn to match colors as harmoniously as nature can.

COLORS OF HABITATS is a beautifully illustrated oversized book of inspiration for artists. The book walks through different habitats from the artic to coral reefs to deserts. Each page spread gives a short poem about the habitat and features illustrations of different animals who live in each habitat with some background and a list of colors that are used in painting that habitat.

What I loved: This book would be fantastic inspiration for budding artists, with so many animals and beautiful illustrations. The diversity of habitats is great with lots to view and think about. For young painters, this would be a great guide to recreating the world around them. I appreciated that the animals are all labeled so that children can search for those they are particularly interested in, and the labeled colors at the top add to the fun and make a start towards creating a palette for each habitat. The poems on each page spread are cute.

What left me wanting more: It would be great to have partnered these gorgeous illustrations with more facts and information about each habitat so that it could have a broader audience, but it still makes a great tool for artists and coffee table style book. The font chosen is also a bit hard to read in places (it is the cursive used for "colors" on the cover), which is really curly with flourishes.

Final verdict: A gorgeously illustrated artistic guide, COLORS OF HABITATS features a diversity of habitats along with animals in each and key colors to use when creating artwork. Would recommend to budding artists looking for inspiration.
