I’m the first to admit that I have zero artistic talent and while I’ve wanted to try those new coloring books for adults that seem to be popping up everywhere I’ve been a bit intimidated. They’re scary! I don’t want to color in something uber complicated like a mandala, I just want to have fun! This is why I was thrilled to come across this adorable book!

As soon as I received it I made a trip to Staples and picked up a basic set of Crayola colored pencils and settled in for some fun. And it really was fun! The pictures are easy to fill in with various colors and are just intricate enough to be engaging without totally overwhelming and discouraging you. I also felt like I could be as creative (or not) as I wanted without feeling bad. I colored in the entire page of Failure is Impossible in orange simply because I could and it was incredibly freeing.

The entire coloring process is remarkably calming and is a great way to ease stress and just let yourself be for a while. It’s almost like mediation in settling your mind and now I remember why I so enjoyed coloring as a child!

Overall, this is an incredibly entertaining book with a nice variety of designs and quotes that will leave your day better for having interacted with it. This is the first book I’ve tried in the series and I can’t wait to try the others as well. I certainly highly, highly recommend this!
