My Name is Melissa and I Like to Use Coloring Books.

As a new wave of interest in coloring books gains popularity, I have to say I’m relieved. I have been a closet coloring book user for years. I would look for the most interesting pages in my children’s coloring books and ask if I could use them. I never mentioned this to friends because, well, it seems childish to color.


When I color, I feel calm, centered, and happy. It helps me concentrate on thinking through problems. I haven’t taken the time to do research, but in my humble opinion, I consider coloring to be a valuable and calming activity. It is with great happiness that I share a few of my personal favorite coloring books below. Some products are located at affiliate links, but others are not.

Happy Coloring!
