Title: A Giving Heart: A Coloring Book Celebrating Motherhood
Illustrator: Stephanie Corfee
“Enjoy moments of peaceful creativity while being reminded of your special place in the hearts of your loved ones and your wonderful God-given purpose …” the back jacket states in Stephanie Corfee’s A Giving Heart: A Coloring Book Celebrating Motherhood.
~ What ~
This ninety-six-page paperback targets mothers who enjoy down time coloring. With forty-six illustrations, the right side of the pages have black and white artistic designs to color. The left side is usually left blank so that the art medium does not bleed through the pages. While focusing on motherhood, the designs celebrate the topic with a Bible verse or saying often incorporated into the drawings. The NKJV, NLT, NIV, MSG, and NLV versions of the Holy Bible are referenced.
Including a verse from Psalms, Proverbs, Matthew, or Romans to name a few, also added are quotes from well-known individuals such as Lincoln, Graham, Mother Teresa, and Chapin. The drawings involve lovely patterns of mothers, flowers, leaves, hearts, birds, foods, objects, and mandalas as a few examples.
~ Why ~
Moms who love to draw, doodle, or fill in coloring books will love this book that concentrates on them. I like that the written words are short and to the point, while the charming illustrations are clear, crisp, and creative.
~ Why Not ~
Those who are not mothers or do not have time on their hands may not appreciate this book. Others may not care for coloring or doodling.
~ Wish ~
I wish more coloring books were available like this that had one side blank in case the paint or markers bled through and that they could be removed and framed.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for a special gift for a mother or to give to children to color, cut out, and frame as a gift to give, this would be a keeper and appreciated greatly by a mom.
Thanks to Hatchette Books for this complimentary book that I am freely reviewing.
