Review: God Bless America, An Adult Coloring Book

46.jpgEnter the pages of this coloring book for adults, and you will find a peaceful way to reflect on what makes America a truly amazing country: our values of equality, opportunity, faith,family, character, generosity, justice, and perseverance. Each coloring page features an original design from one of nine different artists, illustrating an inspirational quote from one of the Founding Fathers, an historic document, a patriotic hymn, or another of America’s heroes.
Slow down, quiet the noise, and express creativity as you color your way through history.
So grab your colored pencils or markers, find a comfortable spot to relax, and spend some time celebrating America. To help set the perfect patriotic mood, a link to the “Coloring America” playlist is included inside.

The Basics: Images are printed on one side of thick paper.
This coloring book is marker friendly.
Pages are perforated.

Images: Every picture displays a quote and the author’s name. On the backside of each page is a brief history behind the quote, which easily became my favorite feature. This coloring book is more of the scenic sort. You won’t find any mandala prints in this book. Even without the use of mandala prints, I still found a nice variety of images here. Some pages use more shading. Other pages have a sloppier appearance as if they traced a watercolor painting. Some are more detailed and others have a simplified look to it. I look forward to seeing a finished page in this “watercolor” style. I have a feeling these pages are going to turn out nicely.
For me, God Bless America incorporated some of my favorite things in a coloring book: Scenic pages, famous quotes, and historical tidbits. I’m rating it 5 stars.
