This is, by far, my favorite coloring book I’ve seen. If you have any affinity for Alice and her friends from Wonderland, you will LOVE coloring the pictures in this book! If you’re not on the coloring bandwagon yet, this book will give you the perfect opportunity to dive in! Research supports the health benefits of coloring books to reduce stress and anxiety, increase relaxation and focus and to spark creativity. For me, though, it’s just sometimes nice to feel five years old again with nothing to worry about besides staying inside the lines (or not). My fifteen year old is super excited about this book, though, so I’m pretty sure it will become hers. This is truly a coloring book that the entire family could enjoy – it’s beautiful enough for adults to want to participate, but creative and fun enough that my younger daughters were super excited when it arrived.
This big, beautiful coloring book is just so fancy and fun! It even has a dust cover – that you can color! The pages are thick and the drawings go all the way to the edges – absolutely no space is wasted in this gem of a coloring book. My girls are all a bit obsessed with Alice and her friends, so I had an immediate connection with it. It’s a bit wonky and quirky, but the designs are also beautiful and intricate. Hedgehogs and flamingos, flowers and owls, royal frogs and cupcakes – all of which are so fantastically imaginative and filled with shapes and patterns that would make anyone excited to join in on the coloring fun!
There are nine little chapters in this 80 page book, each with a theme and short paragraph of story inspiration. There are even a few pages with puzzles to solve as you go through the book. This is definitely more than a coloring book, it is a coloring adventure where the reader becomes the storyteller.
This book would make a wonderful gift for anyone with an affection for Alice and her friends, or even as a sweet little gift for yourself. I hope you’ll check it out!
