Animal Colouring Books for relaxation


If you're looking for something really relaxing and creative to do, but you're no good at drawing, you could take a look at Millie Marotta's Animal Kingdom - A Colouring Book Adventure

Very reasonably priced at £3.99, it has beautiful illustrations of fish, birds, mammals, trees, plants and flowers, all ready for adults to bring to life. 

Most colouring books are aimed at children, and it isn't often you find one for adults, but this one gives people the chance to do something very relaxing which is animal related.  A number of the reviewers are ill, and the book has given them something to do while they are resting, and others have said it is a great de-stressor.

The pictures are quite intricate, and there are on occasions facts about some of the animals and suggestions as to what you could use to fill the pictures in.  Since the picture are detailed, it takes a while to fill them in.

One of Amazon's best selling books, Millie Marotta's Animal Kingdom is a great way to enjoy being creative without having to do the drawing yourself - it's been done for you!
