This is a charming coloring book — with a twist. It is conveniently sized, printed on high quality paper, just this side of card stock, that would work with any media, with a soft cover in perfect binding. The book is filled with charming and consistent line drawings of simple holiday scenes on one side, and a quote and stationery style lines to write notes. But the surprisingly high quality is not the “twist,” though.

Rather, each coloring page has a lovely, contemporary palette at the bottom. Each swatch is numbered and within each area to be colored in, there’s a matching, colored number. So, it’s basically a simple color-by-numbers Christmas coloring book. It’s just what I need to get through the hectic holiday season!
