Good for Kids that challenge the rules
This is an excellent book to encourage creative thinking in children that do not enjoy the typical coloring and painting done in most schools. My 10 year old son has always hated coloring and detailed hand written activities. He loves this book and can put as little or as much detail to his drawings as he chooses. He especially enjoyed the pages that had scientific or exploration themes. He even identified with the "Anit-Coloring-Book" title and felt excited by something that seemed to champion his thoughts about having to color preprinted sheets. He never would stay in the lines, (not because he could'nt,); he always felt coloring was a waste of time and energy. I wish I had found this series sooner and looking forward to exploring more of the titles.

I've used the books by Susan Striker with my kids who are now grown, and they lie right next to their photo albums for all time. Looking at their creativity and the imagination they used is a lot of fun for me to see sometimes .. and now THEM ! The first Anti-Coloring Book I found was in the Huntington, WV Museum of Art. They're great for adolescents -- and until 12 or 13 at least ... something every grandparent and parent will love. I've given many away for birthdays as it's something kids can actually USE. I spoke with the buyer today when I was in a beautiful museum shop in DeLand, Florida, and she said they sound just like what she needs as it's so hard to find things for that age group. She's probably going to order some. Neat.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
