National Coloring Book Day
My kids always loved coloring when they were younger, but lately, coloring has become popular with adults as well. I’ve reviewed quite a few adult coloring books, and I love relaxing by coloring each night.
Wondering about the history of National Coloring Book Day? Did you know that 1970 was the year that the very first coloring book marketed for adults was published?
It was an antique automobile coloring book. So, the very best way to celebrate National Coloring Book Day is to grab your favorite coloring book and get coloring!
Finally, here are two new books to tempt you.
