Perfect for Spring, Harper Collins just sent us two adult coloring books by Eleri Fowler:
I don't think anyone needs me to explain that adult coloring books in general are very popular right now. What I like about Fowler's two selections here is the variety - while you get a general sense of her style, you do not feel like you are seeing the same pictures over and over again. From flowers to mandalas, a quote inside a pear shape or a teacup to garden gates and butterflies - and the sweetest little birds!
The drawings are intricate enough to take a little time, but not so tiny you go cross-eyed trying to fill them in. The paper itself is nice and heavy, suitable for framing and presenting as a gift - are you ever too old to give your mother a picture you made for Mother's Day?
BOTH of these titles will be given away as door prizes at our library's Family Coloring Day this Saturday, so if you are in the area, stop by for some relaxing fun and your chance to win!
