These coloring pages are beautifully illustrated to capture all kinds of things that celebrate being a mom. Some of these are beautiful quotes from various speakers and even Scriptures that capture the beauty, strength and essence of being a mom. This would make a wonderful gift for that creative and artistic mom who is looking for something beautiful and unique. There is even a dedication page that you can fill out to give to that special mom in your life. Some quotes include ones from such notables like Billy Graham, Abraham Lincoln, Mother Teresa, Michael O. Adesanya, Edwin Hubbell Chapin and so many others.
What I absolutely LOVE about A Giving Heart is that each page is uniquely separated by blank pages or a simple quote on the reverse side. This is really exceptional because so many coloring books print on both sides and depending on the media source you use to color your pages with, some may bleed through, like markers. I find that even using a spare piece of paper helps to prevent bleed through on some markers no matter how lightly you use them.
I received A Giving Heart: A Coloring Book Celebrating Motherhood by Stephanie Corfee compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups. I love using all kinds of things to color with and perhaps my new found favorite is Prisma coloring pencils because they don't bleed through the pages and the ability to blend your colors together makes shading and highlighting so much easier. For me, I will use this whenever I simply need to take a breather in my day, perhaps taking on too much and the need to slow down, coloring helps. I easily give this coloring book a 5 out of 5 stars.
~ What ~
This ninety-six-page paperback targets mothers who enjoy down time coloring. With forty-six illustrations, the right side of the pages have black and white artistic designs to color. The left side is usually left blank so that the art medium does not bleed through the pages. While focusing on motherhood, the designs celebrate the topic with a Bible verse or saying often incorporated into the drawings. The NKJV, NLT, NIV, MSG, and NLV versions of the Holy Bible are referenced.
Including a verse from Psalms, Proverbs, Matthew, or Romans to name a few, also added are quotes from well-known individuals such as Lincoln, Graham, Mother Teresa, and Chapin. The drawings involve lovely patterns of mothers, flowers, leaves, hearts, birds, foods, objects, and mandalas as a few examples.
~ Why ~
Moms who love to draw, doodle, or fill in coloring books will love this book that concentrates on them. I like that the written words are short and to the point, while the charming illustrations are clear, crisp, and creative.
~ Why Not ~
Those who are not mothers or do not have time on their hands may not appreciate this book. Others may not care for coloring or doodling.
~ Wish ~
I wish more coloring books were available like this that had one side blank in case the paint or markers bled through and that they could be removed and framed.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for a special gift for a mother or to give to children to color, cut out, and frame as a gift to give, this would be a keeper and appreciated greatly by a mom.
Thanks to Hatchette Books for this complimentary book that I am freely reviewing.
