My Review
I have to say, I'm a huge fan of coloring books. As a kid, coloring was one of my favorite hobbies. As an adult, I like to color every once in a while to relax and de-stress. These Creative Haven Color by Number books bring back the nostalgia of coloring as a kid. Especially because each picture is labeled with a number that corresponds with a color. It takes away the stress of trying to decide what the best color might be for certain scenes. Definitely a plus. 
For the sake of my review, I did decide to print out the color guide and a scene from the coloring book to do a quick scribble on to showcase the various colors, although I didn't do the whole scene or all of the colors (my pencils seemingly disappeared, so I had to order a new set).



I think these scenes are delightful and lovely, and having each color specifically labeled makes it so much easier to color it all in and make it look pretty. 
I would definitely recommend these coloring books to fans of coloring to relax or de-stress.
5 stars!
