The Best Coloring Books

Surprise Me!

Someone left me a comment asking what are my favorite coloring books.  Actually until I had my princess loving daughter I was never a big fan of coloring books and my two boys never really used or seemed to enjoy them.  I always felt a plain piece of paper was the way to go, but my four year old loves plain old fashion coloring books—the more princesses the better. So for her I have scummed.

For older children my favorite coloring books are a series of clever books by Susan Striker, The Anti-Coloring Book: Creative Activities for Ages 6 and Up

The pages of these books are filled with open ended questions to get a child thinking and creating!

Often times a blank page is intimidating for a child.  These books  provide a nice prompt for getting the imagination flowing! You may try some free sample pages of Susan Striker’s books here.
