My Review

I really like this one as it you color the front then on the back of the page you can write a little something about your picture. There is quotes too on the back of each page. Great for coloring on the road when commute especially for adults.

Another good one with no design on the back of the pages.  The front of the cover inside the book gives you a chart to understand the coloring.

My Review
I don’t like how it is printed on both sides of the paper. As you will be able to see the previous picture when you are done coloring it. The pictures are great and I still am trying to figure out which one to colored in first.
