The Colouring and Activity Book is another title from the Essex Hundred family aimed at children. The book includes pictures to colour, word searches and other puzzles and questions. The text has been written by Glenis Summers with the help of Kate and Tom Fewings from Rayleigh.
The county of Essex is rich in history and the resulting book is relevant to KS2 local history work. It is just the thing to stimulate young enquiring minds. The Magna Carta, Anne Boleyn, jam making at Tiptree and The Mulberry in the River Thames are just some of the topics covered. As usual the book is illustrated with superb line drawings from Elizabeth Summers.
