Butterflies Coloring Book
Rated by: Kathy N. in Boston, MA
This book, like all the Dover books, have become a resource, not simply a coloring book to me. First thing I do when I get another Dover book is to take a craft knife, remove all the pages, and store the single sided pages in a large plastic envelope with the cover of the book showing through the envelope. When I want to use an image, I make copies on my copier at the correct size, then return the return the original to the envelope. The butterflies in this book helped me design a series of sweatshirts for my nieces, some hanging window tints, and now are helping me design a tapestry. Not bad for a "child's toy" huh?

I have just found this to be wonderful. I have to hid from my Grandson, he is ten years old and love to draw, but Grandmother is hogging this book just for my card making and Scrapbooking. I like everything about this book. I love Butterflies. If there are anymore with other creatures please let me know. Thanks

I bought this for my roommate as a birthday present and she loved it. The pictures are beautiful and they are a welcome relief from class homework.

Pretty pictures! Not a very thick book...

Using my photocopier I adjust the size of the butterfly I need for my project. I copy in black & white so I don't waste color ink. I make a template from the copy and transfer the adjusted butterfly to my project. I appreciate the colors in this book. They give me direction altho I use my own color choices.

Dover coloring books are lots of fun...all breeds of butterflies...could be more realistic in rendering.
