    I have not bought it yet but the Google books content makes The Marine Biology Coloring Book look very good as a teacher's resource for an ocean studies segment.

    I've had the Marine Biology Coloring book for years - never actually colored any of the drawings -- yet! It's a wonderful resource and an interesting book to read through. It seems to be written for adults and advanced students. The idea is that by coloring in the illustrations (the author gives your instructions as to what colors to use), you'll focus on the details and remember better.

    I had one of these and a zoology one (& I did colour some of the pics, was great for revision!) but I gave mine away to the aquarium! Maybe I need to get new copies!

    Way more sophisticated than any other coloring book I've seen; it's a passable intro-to-marine bio text.
