    Color-N-Carry: ON the GO Travel Activity for Kids ... Color-N-Carry travel coloring books are a travel toy and art activity in one! This animal-themed set has a built-in set of eight crayons that stores neatly at the back of the book. When it is time to color, the entire marker box hinges out to the side--so both the markers and book are easily accessible but still contained and organized. Bonus: The wide, rigid back makes the perfect lap desk for coloring on the go!
