I can't say enough good things about this series! I've gone through four copies, which I've used as part of gifts and thank you's, for teachers, graduates, birthday, just about any special occasion. I also share with children of all ages when I speak at schools on Find Your Future in Art, letting each student select a card, envelope, and everyone gets one, from elementary through high school, guys and girls! The unique concept makes any recipient feel special--and like coloring!

Ballerina Theater

By Anna Brett

Barron's Educational Series, Inc., 2017, $10.99

​Ages: 8-14

​Genre: 3D colorscapes, coloring book, ballerina, ballet

​ISBN:  9780764168826


I saw these books and I had to have them! Love unique spins on the coloring trend, and these 3D colorscapes are too cool! For adults, teacher gifts, or older teens, I recommend Magical Forest. Ballerina Theater works for slightly younger audiences with crossover appeal to YA ballet enthusiasts. Be warned: not for the very young, coloring detials may cause frustration.  ​​​

This has been one of my favorite coloring books since its release. I love the whimsical looks of every page, and the many different styles to choose from! I had a blast using my imagination to color in a "mermaid," Marie Antoinette, and other magical creatures. A really fun book for girls, moms, and coloring queens. ​​​
