Adult coloring books have taken the world by storm lately, and for good reason. Coloring is extremely soothing, so it is great for stress relief. It is a bit of a mindless activity, so you can do it while watching TV or listening to music or an audiobook. You can do it for 5 minutes or for 5 hours if you want. Coloring is WONDERFUL for those of us with anxiety too–having a panic attack? It might look like dark scribbles at first, but soon enough your breathing will slow down as your mind begins to meditate and focus on the lines.
I’ve been coloring for years, my whole life, really. I didn’t stop when I was a kid, no way! But until recently, they were children’s books. Right now I have a mermaid book and a Muppet Babies. I received my first adult book for Christmas, and now I have The Time Chamber.
While I haven’t yet finished The Time Chamber, I wanted to go ahead and review it. I plan on savoring it for awhile…and a coloring book review is a little odd anyway. I am going to enjoy this very much. There is a cute little story woven into the illustrations, which in themselves are beautiful and creative. The pictures vary between complicated, full page detail, and smaller designs built for the user to draw and create their own art. It’s definitely a story, the same characters pop up throughout–this would be a fun one for a child to draw in along with mom.
The pages are thick, markers won’t bleed. There’s also a hidden treasure key at the back, so there are things to find too! Overall, a very fun book for adult children of all ages. Have fun!
