This book, with its own brightly coloured inkpad of seven colours, is bursting with ideas for fingerprinting animals from hedgehogs to crocodiles and koalas. Each page has step by step instructions, pictures to complete and lots of space for fingerprinting. With a spiral binding so the book lies flat to make it easy for children to create delightful pictures.

“Wonderfully inventive... Parents and grandparents won’t be able to resist joining in.”

Press Reviews

Unbeatable for rainy days.
Smallish magazine
This book is AMAZING! I have to admit I was sceptical about the ink pads, thinking they would be poor quality, messy and dry up easily. I was wrong! The colours are bright and vibrant and they don't smear when pressed on the book and there is enough ink when pressed to make the imprint you want in the book
Toppsta reviewer
Look no further for a rainy day holiday activity.
Angels and Urchins

Those ingenious people at Usborne have come up with a great book to keep little hands very busy.
Made for Mums
This wonderfully inventive book comes with an in-built pad of non-toxic inks in all the colours of the rainbow, ready for young fingers to complete the cleverly designed pages... Parents and grandparents won’t be able to resist joining in.
