~I received Optical Illusions from Barons Educational Series for review. I love this book! Opinions and stories are my own.~
Here’s a secret. Although parents might pretend that they don’t want to color those big $1 coloring books of shapeless characters, we secretly love it. The enjoyment of coloring never actually goes away. It just becomes one of the many things that we are supposed to out grow and typically forget until little fingers hand us crayons. But now coloring has grown up and has given us back the gift shamelessly. For example, in the Just ADD Color series by Carlton Publishing Group you can find incredible designs in Optical Illusions and Mandalas.
Optical Illusions features 120 illustrations that are engaging and more challenging for adults. They come to life with color, vividly becoming works of art. There is a peacefulness to coloring the images and watching the picture unfold. To see the stark contrast of color against the black and white. I love taking the book out when I’m over stressed or wanting to relax.
Optical Illusions is included in Baron’s Educational Series Spring/Summer 2015 Catalog, along with similar titles, such as Color Magic: Mandala Magic and Magic Garden.
There are also many other books for cooking, crafts, arts, fashion, children, pets and even careers! Baron’s has been around since 1941 helping families with educational materials and test preparation for students. Whether you are looking for more information about a personal hobby or art kits for your children, their new catalog has something for everyone. You can also peek inside most of the books by visiting their online shop as well.
Tot really loves seeing the new designs from Optical Illusions once they’re colored. They’re pretty mesmerizing (and sometimes dizzying) without color added! I’ve been looking into crafting them as cards and stationary for a future craft post, but currently they are just for my little guy.
What do you think of the moderized coloring books?
