Holiday fun for your inner child...but not your kid's coloring book!
As a child, did you love coloring?
Do you want to take a mini "vacation" where you get to lose yourself for a bit, have fun & then come back feeling refreshed and focused?
Do you miss that playful sense of wonder we older "kids" tend to run short on?
Magic Christmas can help!
What you can expect from Magic Christmas:
A Delightful Theme
The theme of this coloring book is the magic of Christmas and Santa Claus, as told through the classic poem A Visit from St. Nicholas, better known as 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. It was first published in December of 1823, and the authorship is a bit of a mystery - kind of like Santa!
Mystery & Magic
"Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus," wrote eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon of New York City to The New York Sun in 1897. "Please tell me the truth: is there a Santa Claus?" The paper responded in the most timeless, pro-Santa way imaginable: "Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there...The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see." Like Santa. For a Santa-free world would lack the poetry, faith, romance and love we all need to see beyond the merely mundane. "How dreary would the world be if there were no Santa Claus," continues The Sun, "as dreary as if there were no Virginias...Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus."
In honor of all the myriad imaginative ways we love to depict Santa, Magic Christmas includes a variety of illustration styles. Some are très traditional and others more of-the-moment. But they all have one thing in common: what they need to bring this poem to life is color-color-color!
When images are printed on both sides of a page, colors can bleed through. Which means that markers, sharpies and gel pens are out of the question. Sure colored pencils are great...but so are markers, sharpies & gel pens! Magic Christmas loves all the coloring tools which is why it's printed single-sided.
Pocket-size books are nifty, but if the images to be colored get too small, the lines start to almost run together. In order to avoid infuriating your inner colorer, Magic Christmas is a roomy & Santa-approved 8.5" x 11".
