Colour Africa Proverbs

A colouring book about the colours, cultures and wisdom of Africa.

What is Colour Africa Proverbs?

Colour Africa Proverbs is a colouring book based on beautifully illustrated proverbs from all over Africa. The proverbs teach universal truths in an engaging and interactive way: respect, compassion and teamwork are central themes.

“Colour Africa is our favourite publication for youngsters – it is wise, entertaining and educational and a great gift for the young and young at heart from all over the world. A little bit of Africa to take home in a fun format.”
Sarah, Trale & Sienna
“These books are so special, and my kids and I love seeing the stunning illustrations and clever messaging come to life! They also make a wonderful gift, especially for overseas friends and family who miss home!”
Tanya Goodman
“I gifted a book to one of my favourite teenagers for her 15th birthday and she loves it. The act of colouring in really gives you time to ponder the proverb and how it applies in your own life. I’ll be taking more copies to give as presents to friends and family in the USA next time I travel – it’s perfect for kids of all ages, and adults too.”
Anita Visser
“I donated some copies of the book – if feels good know the children will have fun and learn at the same time. Great product.”
