REVIEW:
What fun!
I love to doodle. I always have pads of paper and a pen or pencil nearby. I also know I am an adult. That's ok. This book is actually geared for adults to have fun with.
This was the first page of the book, and also the first page I started to color. I love the quote. It's so true! 
I got my colored pencils out and started to have fun. It was good time spent, and after I finished, I couldn't believe how fast time flew.
This book is great for just kicking back. I was a little stressed, and I got lost in the art so the stress eased. Plus it was nice to see it finished. 
I think a lot of adults are like me. Love to draw, doodle and color. This book is perfect to fill those needs, and you get a great philosophical lesson in the meantime with quotes. I definitely recommend it for relieving stress and just having fun.

5/5
