"So much more than a coloring book."
Or so the author and illustrator report on the Our Story page of Big and Little Coloring Devotional. That statement is on point. Here's why:
A frazzled writer/mama trying to keep her dishes spinning, while pouring into her children on a spiritual level, prayed a prayer that was answered, unbeknownst to an illustrator who felt a similar burden, but became overwhelmed at the idea of writing/publishing. God does what God does and Rachel C. Swanson teamed up with Jacy Corral to create what I believe is a brilliant tool for the parenting arsenal.
Yes, it's a coloring book for children. Join the million others on the shelves.
Yes, it's a coloring book for adults. Welcome to the newest fad, along with countless other beautiful patterns flooding the market.
Yes, it's a devotional. Between apps, websites, blogs, ebooks, and paperbacks...Lord, have mercy. Literally.
What makes this book unique is that it was created to solve a problem. Life is busy. Parents want to meaningfully interact with their children. Time is limited. What do you do?
This vertical coloring book presents the same scripture focus on both pages of the book. One side is a simple design with the verse only (Meant for the child). The other side is a more complicated pattern with an actual devotion paired with the same scripture.
You and your darling can actually face one another, eyeball to eyeball, color, and discuss God's Word in the interim. Win, win, win!
As a mama of Irish twins who were once upon a time littles, I adore this idea and recommend you buy now for Christmas morning!
