The Colour Africa Proverbs colouring book is a side project of members of Design for development and has become a well-loved activity book for children.

The illustrations in the book are based on 10 African proverbs – each proverb appears in its original language, with the English translation and an explanation at the back of the book. Children learn important life lessons from the proverbs, while colouring in (which has several benefits like improving hand-eye coordination). Colouring the lively hand-drawn letters is a great way for children to learn different letter shapes.

Colour Africa Proverbs provides children and adults a chance to learn and play together. To order your Colour Africa Proverbs, follow this link.
