My Lovely Colouring Book

Bloomsbury Activity Books, 2016. ISBN 9781408879306
(Age: 7+) Recommended as a gift. With the craze for colouring in books still happening, this beautifully produced book is sure to be a winner.
There are flowers, fish, animals of all kinds, fruit and vegetables, all beautifully designed to catch the interest of someone who would like to relax and be creative with colour. The separate illustrations of two fabulous owls caught my eye as I was flicking through the book. On the left hand side of the page it is coloured in and on the right hand side is the same image for the user to colour in as the imagination demands or perhaps for a younger user, to copy. Each of the many illustrations has wonderful shapes and patterns, some in colour to stimulate interest and some in black and white to whet the artistic bent of the user.
This would make a lovely gift for anyone who is interested in colouring in and is sure to prove to be both stimulating and relaxing.
