My almost ten year old, Evergreen, loves the more grown-up coloring books that are all the rage lately, so I figured this would probably be a big hit for her. What I didn’t expect was how high-quality this coloring devotional is. It’s actually a lovely hard cover book, which was a first for us with coloring books of any sort. The pages are also actually thick, too. I’ve seen numerous coloring books claim to have thick pages, but everything else we’ve tried didn’t hold true to that claim and still bleeds terribly. I imagine some dark pens or markers might still bleed a bit, but Evergreen says she hasn’t had any issues so far!
Each of the sixty devotionals features a short passage from the Bible and a brief devotional, including a writing prompt along with a variety of lovely, whimsical line drawings to color in while reflecting on the day’s thought. As soon as Evergreen saw the book she was begging me to run off to her room with it and get started.
I love that this coloring book encourages a relaxing, positive experience with soaking up God’s word, and Evergreen loves how fun the pages are to color. We both agree that this is a perfect gift for tween girls! 🙂
