My thoughts: I really like the size of this book because it is the perfect size to fit in my purse so that I can take it with me. I really like that you get a bible verse, discussion and then a coloring page with each lesson. This book is very relaxing and calming. I think this would make an excellent gift. I truly enjoyed reading and coloring in this book. **Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.**
