What’s the Deal With Adult Coloring Books?

Amazing Birds: Adult Coloring Book

Amazing Birds: Adult Coloring Book by Tali Carmi, a children’s book author, brings back memories of my grandmother, who used to sit and color with me as a child.  From the moment I had a “real job”, I had a box of Crayola 64 at my desk.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take the time to color.  Forgetting that it was the mindless relaxation that I hadn’t appreciated when I was younger.  The hardest decision you have to make when you color is what color to use!

This coloring book has lovely pictures of different birds with just a little blurb about that particular bird.  Nothing to cerebral.  The designs in each picture make for beautiful and interesting pictures.  While crayons would certainly work, I suggest you get some good quality Crayola Colored Pencils, so you can get into the smaller spaces.  

Some of my personal favorites are the vulture, with desert designs in the picture, the swan, with symbols of love, and the flamingo, with shells and a beach scene.  There are lots of little details that make each picture interesting and a just a little challenging.

I found coloring in this adult coloring book to be relaxing and calming.  I could almost feel my blood pressure start to lower as I colored.  I’m so glad that I was reminded of the value of this childhood pleasure of mine and plan on continuing to color when I need a little downtime.  I have some more pages to color of the Amazing Birds book and I can’t wait to see how each one comes out.

I would strongly suggest that you buy the book.  Don’t buy the Kindle version, where you have print each sheet.  Get the book in your hand.  Hold do the pages as you color your picture.  And while you’re at it, check out Amazing Sea Life: Adult Coloring Book, too!

  1. I am amazed at how adult colouring-in has suddenly taken off. I used to be too scared to say I liked to colour in – now every man and his dog has a book! Great post Sandy (and it is really relaxing and gets you into a bit of a zen moment!)


  2. I loved colouring with my kids when they were little, I tend to still doodle now – just for fun – with a littel colouring in now and then! It’s such a soothing thing to do I find.


May I also add...?
