Aye B, See My Tattoos? Coloring Book

By Pierre Botardo and Claudia De Pace Botardo. With Hand Drawn Illustrations from Tattoo Pepe. 

AYE B, SEE MY TATTOOS? is not your usual kind of coloring book. This book has many functions. Teaching the alphabet, learning and spelling the word corresponding to each illustration, exposing a child’s mind to two languages with translated words from English to Spanish and vice versa, and encouraging a child’s imagination and creativity to color each illustration. We have chosen Spanish for the first book because it’s the second most spoken language in the United States next to English. And last, these illustrations are tattoo ready for professional tattoo artists. These stencils are ready to go!

I love the illustrations in Aye B, See My Tattoos?. I colored half this book the day it arrived. The translation of words from English to Spanish and vice versa is great for kids to learn while coloring and it’s a great book for both tattoo enthusiasts and artists. Next tattoos Sirena/Mermaid and Turtle/Tortuga. Can’t wait for books 2 and 3.
