April 2015 Coloring books are the latest craze, with adults discovering how relaxing they can be. Here is one aimed at younger colorists but which still has plenty in it to please adults. The author is a textile designer and the eighteen designs in here are taken from her fabrics. Inside the back cover are color wheels and some basic advice about using color but apart from that it is nicely filled with drawings to make your own. Unlike a lot of modern coloring books this one sensibly has not printed the pictures back to back but on just one side. This means you can use whatever you like to color it in although if you are using permanent markers or paints placing a sheet of paper under the picture (or cutting it out first) would be a good idea. The paper is good quality and white, each picture having a simple line frame. Designs include birds, butterflies, flowers, abstracts and my own favorite an elephant. Some offer the option of adding a bit more design if you like to doodle and there is a bookmark to detach from the cover. I've seen bigger, thicker or more detailed coloring books but this one has a nice twist - patterns from fabric - and the added bonus of good quality paper printed on only one side. This book is one of six titles to date, all with the same quality paper and other attributes. Choose from Playful Designs, Fantastical Designs, Swirling Designs, Doodle Designs and Whimsical Designs.

Valori's talents as a photographer captured nature at its best, and her inspirational images soon became the focus of her own distinctive quilting style. Her career came into full blossom when she began designing fabrics for the quilting industry. Valori returned to sisters to join her mother in managing the store. Currently she is a designer for Free Spirit Textiles. Valori has also been spreading her wings in the direction of soft furnishings and has teamed with Jean to create books on home furnishings.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
