Is this the best colouring book we've ever seen? Yes, yes it is.

OK, so, we really love Adafruit Industries. It's an inclusive place where people of all ages and skill levels can go to learn about electronics and get components and kits for making their own gadgets. It was created by MIT engineer Limor "Ladyada" Fried.

And then Adafruit goes and does something like this: E is for Electronics, a colouring book for kids. Inside, you'll find an A-Z of electronic components and the historical figures who invented them, with a short description on each page to describe what's going on in each picture. It's great for kids, but we reckon there are some grown-ups who'll get a kick out of it, too.

The book is available from Adafruit for US$9.95 here, but if you want to print it out yourself, it's also available is a free PDF here (PDF).
