Way better than a regular coloring book!
My kids, when they get a new coloring book as a present, only tend to color a few pages and then lose interest. This is why, when I periodically clean out the craft cabinet, I end up recycling a stack of partly used coloring books. And why, when I saw this wonderful, out-of-the-ordinary coloring book by Taro Gomi, I had to get it and see how the kids liked it. It offers direction but gives the user creative license. They have already spent a lot of time with this book (both the 11 and 6 year olds--the 3 year old will grow into it more). There are other books in the 'series'--I imagine we will be acquiring them all!
