Color Around the World

So have you joined the coloring craze? I am absolutely loving using the coloring books that I own! I find it relaxing and de-stressing (is that a word?) to sit down at the end of the day and color a bit. I don't know if it is because it takes me back to my childhood or if the act of doing art is somehow mentally relaxing, but I am hooked! I have several theme-based coloring book posts here if you would like to take a look at what is available. There are all kinds of books out there!

Faith-based Coloring
Coloring Books for Animal Lovers
Nature-based Coloring {coming soon!}

As a language teacher, I love all things international. Here is a look at some of the coloring books out there that can take you on a trip around the world while you stay in the comfort of home...

{NOTE: Most of these books have photos of sample pages in the review section. Take a peek to see if it is a style you would enjoy coloring.}
