~I received Dot to Dot NYC for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
I love adult coloring books and now there are even more adult activity books out there that are more than just coloring! Dot to Dot NYC by Narae Kim is a book of difficult yet fun connect the dot pages all themed with New York City in mind. When you are done you can color them in for even more fun!
Follow the numbers, grab your crayons and markers, and discover and decorate the capital of the world… Hidden just beyond sight in this adventurous dot to dot coloring book lie epic New York City landmarks to be revealed and completed by you, the intrepid artist. Intricate and detailed, the final results are delicate and beautiful while stunning in their complexity. Within these pages you will find yourself visiting the rides of Coney Island, the towers of the famous NYC skyline, the commute along the Staten Island Ferry, the wilderness of the Bronx Zoo, the groove of the Apollo Theater, and the art deco elegance of the Chrysler Building, among so much more!
Not only fun, dot to dot art has been proven to increase short-term cognitive acuity, hand-eye coordination, concentration skills, as well as mood.
Not just for a rainy day, enjoy this celebration of the Big Apple as a keepsake of your visit, or spend your hours connecting the dots and inch yourself closer to your Broadway dream.

The example above is from the book. It is just dots…then you connect them…then you color them in! The pages are big and it is actually more fun that you think! It is so relaxing to sit and have to focus on the next number in the sequence! Think of it as giving yourself a much needed time out! A fabulous activity book for older children, teenagers and adults!
