The Secret Village Coloring Book Review and Give-away!!

We were given the chance to review these beautiful coloring books called The Secret Village by The Thinking Tree. Sarah Janisse Brown also graciously sent me 3 extra books to give-away to some of you!
There are so many details to color!
 
My daughter and I had fun coloring together. It was a great time to talk! Our hands were busy, so she felt more comfortable opening up.
 

My daughters like the cute woodland creatures!

Some of the pages are simple, which is great if you only have a few minutes to color.


The pages are blank on one side. This is wonderful if you want to use markers or gel pen - no bleeding through! We used Crayola markers, which worked beautifully.
 
The verdict? These coloring books are amazing! My daughters thought they were so much fun to color, and I find it so relaxing to sit and color the intricate details. The pictures are so fun! This would make a wonderful Christmas gift for the child {or adult!} who loves to color.

 
Now - I am going to give 3 of these gorgeous books away. All you have to do is a leave a comment! I will choose the winners on Friday, December 18, 2015.
 
Check out Sarah Janisse Brown on Facebook, her website, or Amazon!

  13. I would LOVE to win a copy of this beautiful coloring book with detailed images to color. I am sure Alyssa will also adore the woodland creatures - she's such an animal lover. I would definitely use them with my daughter during our couch conversations. This may help us both relax a little more when discussing difficult topics. Thank you for the opportunity!

  15. How fun would it be to sit at the table an colour with the kids? I could put my drawer of pens and pencils to good use now that I don't have the time nor space for scrapbooking. A little colouring would do me good to feel creative once more.
