Wonders of Creation Coloring Book Review and Giveaway



My family and I love coloring! It is a favorite pastime in our household. It helps us slow down, relax, and mediate on just coloring the pages. This trend of "adult coloring books" is wonderful in my honest opinion. Coloring the shapes and patterns is actually soothing to me and it fills my need for being artsy...at least a little bit. With the high levels of stress going around these days, we need something calming to help us stay levelheaded and more mindful. Coloring is a fantastic therapy.

The Wonders of Creation: Illustrations to Color and Inspire is a coloring book that is published by Zondervan helps us also contemplate God's amazing world. This coloring book has a gorgeous foil embossed cover. It has 96 pages of back to back detailed black-and-white illustrations of animals, landscapes, and other wonders of our created world on high quality paper. The drawings are illustrated by Cindy Wilde and Pimlada Phuapradit. Promises hours of coloring inspiration in any hue of your choosing. You may use felt markers, coloring pens, coloring pencils, or even crayons to complete each page. Just make sure your art media doesn't bleed through to the other side since the pages are double-sided.



I love this particular coloring book myself because of all the lovely, whimsical pages of Eden-esque flora and  fauna from around the globe. The pages are filled with line art of intricate patterns and fanciful scrolling designs. I love that the Wonders of Creation includes a couple pages at the beginning to explain this artwork. This book is great for ages tween to adult, but my girls who are younger loved watching me color the beautiful pages and flipping through the pages just to look at them too. It is a unique element to my personal quiet time and devotions.

BUY IT
This would make a wonderful gift for someone and Mother's Day is coming up! You can purchase it from Zondervan for $15.99.

Coloring is a great way to unwind! I was an art major in college, and even if I can't get my paints out, a coloring book will work wonders!

I have not colored in a long time. I think I would like it and I would benefit from reducing my stress level.

Coloring together while listening to praise music is one thing my daughter and I like to do together.. In fact, it was the first thing she asked to do for her birthday this weekend.
