Colouring & Guide Book

 Text & Drawings by Audrey Murphy

Sample page

This colouring book includes a few of the more common creepy crawlies that can be found in Ireland throughout the year. Colouring each one and reading the short descriptions will help you identify some of the more common species. The introduction to this book will also help you understand more about these interesting creatures. We include the English, Latin (scientific name) and Irish name where possible.

The world outside your window is crammed with creepy crawlies of all different shapes, colours and sizes. At first glance many can be difficult to see, but once you know when and where to look you will be amazed by what you find. Maybe you will discover a centipede under a stone, a woodlouse rolled up into a ball or a worm dangling at the end of a garden fork. This booklet takes a look at some of these wonderful creatures and gives you a little information about each one.
