This is such a creative idea! With all the swirling colors on the page, it will really spark your imagination in a new way when you have to put in the lines and bring clarity to the page.

The book is divided into sections for each season of the year, with bright green colors for spring, and warm reds and yellows for autumn, and cool blues and grays for winter.

Activity Book Review: The Anxiety Relief Coloring Book

The Anxiety Relief Coloring Book for Adults by Kara Holmes

The Anxiety Relief Coloring Book for Adults: Mindful Coloring to Decrease Stress and Anxiety
by Kara Holmes

5 out of 5 stars

This coloring book includes inspirational sayings and affirmations to encourage you while you color! My favorite one was “I Feed My Mind with Good Things” with a design of books to color.

There are a ton of different designs of everything from flowers and singing cacti to random swirls and lines. There are jam jars, sailing boats, and people sleeping under mountains of blankets. I love that it’s a random collection of things from page to page, so you are sure to find something that inspires you to color and relax!

The Reverse Coloring Book™: The Book Has the Colors, You Draw the Lines!

5 out of 5 stars

This is such a creative idea! With all the swirling colors on the page, it will really spark your imagination in a new way when you have to put in the lines and bring clarity to the page. I am so impressed with this beautiful book!

This whole book is so bright and attractive! Most of the pages are just random swirls of color. Some of the pages are very obviously flowers, but it would be interesting to challenge yourself to make it look like something other than flowers, or add little details of animals and insects into the scene as well.

Book Review: Laugh-Out-Loud Pocket Doodles for Boys

Laugh-Out-Loud Pocket Doodles for Boys
Laugh-Out-Loud Pocket Doodles for Boys by Rob Elliott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This hilarious book of jokes has partial illustrations that you can doodle on and fill in the rest of the picture with your own imaginative drawings!
I really liked that the author has included a “Humor Code” in the beginning of the book, that includes rules like “Don’t make jokes at other’s expense.” I love that these jokes are clean and remind us that we can still be funny without hurting, teasing, or bullying others. Continue reading
