Keeping my daughter busy during the summer is something I need to start preparing for, so I’ve been gathering coloring, drawing and crafts books. She loves art of all kinds, so I know she will appreciate all the cool books I have for her. They will come in handy for lazy days at home, road trips, and late night fun.
This awesome book is especially useful for elementary and middle-grade age girls. Jess Polanski’s coloring book Notebook Doodles Go Girl!: Coloring & Activity Book is an inspiring and empowering book for girls. I love all the inspirations that are in this book.
Notebook Doodles Go Girl! Is not just another kid’s coloring book! It is designed specifically for the design-savvy TWEEN who thinks kids books are too juvenile and mom’s adult coloring books are too, well… an adult!
Inside this book, youthful readers will discover 30 interactive art activities that are just waiting to be filled with color. They will also find a coloring art lesson, 20 inspiring color palettes, eight pages of colored examples, and inspiring quotes to go with every design. Watercolors, colored pencils, markers, crayons, and gel pens will all look stunning on high-quality, extra-thick paper. Each page is perforated, so when it’s finished, it can easily be removed to hang up or give as a gift.
