This anatomy coloring book has hundreds of illustrations to color, with the corresponding legends of anatomical terms. The book is divided into sections by body area beginning at the head and neck and working down. The book covers multiple species and pictures include the anatomy of dogs, cats, horses, pigs, birds, and ruminants although each anatomical section is heaviest on the canine. Icons on the top of every page let the reader know which species the illustrations apply.

As the title suggests, this book is primarily a coloring book without lengthy discussion of anatomy. There are easy to understand titles and legends on each page with a table of contents at the beginning of each section. Otherwise, the book is made up of drawings to be colored, not excessive words. The illustrations are well drawn, detailed, and differentiated well for coloring.

This book is an excellent tool for someone studying veterinary anatomy and wanting a “hands-on” learning tool. This book would be valuable as a teaching tool or study guide for veterinary students and veterinary assistant or technician students. It would also make a good addition to the veterinary practice library for staff training and reference. The text is affordable enough to be a valuable tool for the veterinary staff member’s home use as well. The reviewer enjoyed coloring the pages and testing herself on anatomy. It is suggested that one use colored pencils (as pictured on the cover) since felt tip markers could be seen through the other side of the paper.
