Big and Little Coloring Devotional written by Rachel C Swanson andIllustrated by Jacy Corral
This dual age coloring book devotional allows adults to read a short uplifting devotional reading and to relax while coloring a more complex coloring picture. On the opposite page, there is a simpler picture for children to color that is age appropriate for younger ones. The Big and Little Coloring Devotional has 112 pages of uplifting pictures and readings to do together.
I love the idea of this intergenerational coloring devotional. I have to be honest and say that I don't have little ones to color with me right now, although I am not above borrowing nieces or neighbor children to color with me with a mom's blessing. However, I still found the readings in the Big and Little Coloring Devotional to be encouraging and fun as an adult. They are short and refreshing and help me keep my mind on God and Scripture for the day. I like the coloring pictures for both age groups quite while. I would mention that adults will need a sharp pencil and some of the adult coloring pages have tiny spaces to color. For my sample page, I used colored pencils. The pages are fairly thick but with pictures on both sides of the page, I don't think I personally would like to use markers and risk bleeding through. I would recommend this fun coloring devotional to any family or anyone who enjoys coloring. I think it would be a fun gift idea too, maybe in a basket or gift bag with an assortment of colored pencils and crayons.
