Notebook Doodles Amazing Me: Coloring & Activity Book - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
As most everyone knows, one of my favorite hobbies is working with adult coloring books.  I find it to be relaxing and therapeutic.  I own several adult coloring books but just recently learned that some of them are from artist Jess Volinski.  In fact, the books I have from her collection are some of my favorites.  

Notebook Doodles Amazing Me: Coloring & Activity Book is also by Jess Volinski and it's geared towards tweens.  Not only is it a fun book to color in, it is also a place for tweens to share their thoughts and ideas.  


Emma, our 15 year old, has been taking time out some days to work in this coloring diary.  She uses colored pencils and crayons, but other writing instruments could be used.  Each one-sided page is perforated, so pages can easily be torn out.  Or, the tween using it could keep it as a complete book and look back upon it throughout the years.  There are instructions with basic coloring techniques and full-color examples, but don't let that deter you from using your own creativity and imagination.

What I love about this book, and Emma does too, is that it encourages thinking.  For instance, one page is dedicated to "My Family & Me" where you can write down the people in your family, pets, and what being a family might mean.  Another page encourages you to give yourself an amazing compliment and write it down in the large speech bubble.  It's a coloring book that sparks creativity and encouragement, and prompts users to think positively about the things in their life.

Win It!

One person will win Notebook Doodles Amazing Me: Coloring & Activity Book.
