New Children’s Coloring Book

Word Puzzle sample with new book
I’m listening to Art Pepper, one of my favorite jazz artists, playing “Walkin” (Alternate Take 2) and trying to keep cool in the heat. Ahh… Blue Mitchell just came on playing “Park Avenue Petite” (Take 1). Getting in the mood to finalize publication of my most recent coloring book, Wild Things for Kids before moving on to a new book.

Here is a sample of one of my activities for the Wild Things for Kids coloring book. It is a “Find the Word” puzzle with words and images from my two earlier coloring books. I am excited to be adding 15 fun activities to this book.

We visited my 97 year old mother in Central Oregon this past weekend. She actually started coloring the elephant mama and baby picture in Wild Things of the World!! We had a great time together with my brother and sister and their spouses. Family is so important and a great inspiration for creating these wonderful ways to share time together. “Take Five” and share some special time with your family away from this crazy world of ours.

Fishing in Summer

Boy in a Bottle FishingHere we are in the heat of summer! 90 degrees and above is way hot for me. My perfect temperature for summer is 75 degrees with a slight breeze. With no air conditioning we are using all of our fans to keep cool. But, this isn’t stopping me from working diligently on my new (third) coloring book titled Wild Things for Kids.

My second coloring book, Wild Things of the Oceans, Lakes and Streams, was published on Amazon on June 8th, almost exactly one year after my first coloring book, Wild Things of the World.

My Wild Things for Kids coloring book will be twice as big as the first two books and I am adding several activities including Crossword Puzzles, Mazes, Dot-to-Dot and Word Find, for a very fun coloring book for children from ages 6 years to 12 years, although anyone can have fun with this book! I hope to publish it on Amazon in early fall.

I relax and un-stress from the heat while having fun working on and coloring in my favorite coloring books. I hope you do too!

Have fun fishing!
