If you haven't noticed, adult coloring books have become a rage.
I love to color. Should I admit that as an adult?
But, I have been known to break out the crayons and coloring book with the kiddo.
Comes in handy when one of us, or even both of us is under the weather.
Adult coloring books take coloring to a whole new level.
Tiny circles, little lines, small small things to color, lol.
I had the chance to do a review of the book:
Color For Moms and Moms-To-Be
This book will be available for sale on July 19, 2016 and is from DoubleDay Books For Young Readers.
All Ages (yes, not just for adults).
This book is truly unique.
Pictures are very detailed.
A good way to unwind after a long stressful day.
Did I mention that they are really detailed?
What is nice about this book is: small enough to toss in your purse, diaper bag, backpack, etc. Just don't forget your coloring pencils (crayons won't work).
Being that it is reasonably priced, would be perfect as a gift for that special someone.
The picture I am about to show you is my first attempt at an adult coloring book.
I don't have very steady hands.
This one took me quite a bit of time to finish.
Truthfully, if I had to grade myself on it I would only give me a 4 out of 10.
But, the kiddo loved it.
Told me how pretty it is.
Did it relax me?
But, I could see myself getting lost in coloring these pictures and an afternoon slipping by.
You all should really check these out.
Will be available for sale on July 19, 2016 and is $9.99.
Available from DoubleDay Books for Young Readers
