Women of the Bible Feb 8, 2008
If you have ever wondered about some of the women in the Bible, this is a great jumping off point! Good book for kids to look at and color. I loved the range of women included in this book. Most I remembered, and a few were introduced to me for the 1st time....
The pros & cons of this coloring book Jul 23, 2007
This coloring book was a lot of fun to do. I used opaque markers and also crayons in coloring it.
I am not at all religious, but enjoyed the brief stories that accompanied the pictures.
On the minus side - Mr. Green's strong suit is not drawing women. They all pretty much looked alike, and their faces were not very attractively drawn for the most part. He is much better with drawing horses and men.
Everyone wears long, flowing robes, so there are no beautiful clothes to color, but there is background included in each picture and the drawings are large and easy to color.
