Big and Little Coloring Devotional by Rachel Swanson and Jacy Corral (Illustrator)
I hadn’t really explored the whole adult coloring book world, so I was eager to check out this one. The first thing I noticed were the cheerful illustrations. The adult side has a more complex picture to color with a devotional and a scripture (at the very bottom) to meditate on. Meanwhile the child side (on the flip side of the coloring book) has a similar style of picture to color, but a simpler illustration. I found there were days I didn’t want to deal with the small spaces to color and found myself using the child’s side as well. So if you weren’t planning to use this with small kids, you might still want to consider purchasing this for your own use.
This is a great way to bring parents and kids together to share their faith and talk about scripture. The devotionals aren’t so personal that you can’t relate (the way they sometimes are in some devotional books), but are open so you can see yourself in them and apply the lesson to your own life easily.
I was surprised how much I got into using this coloring book. I found that I liked to end my day with it focusing on the devotions and tuning out the world. I can see why these have gotten so popular as they are a great way to calm and center yourself while reflecting and meditating on God’s word. 5 stars!
I received a free copy of this coloring book from B&H Publishers for the purpose of giving an honest review. All opinions are my own.
