Confession time. The reason we have more crayons, colored pencils, coloring books and art supplies than Lee’s Art Supplies is not because I am attempting to nurture my four year old’s artistic side. If given the choice he would definitely choose Legos and launching Hot Wheels off the bookshelf. No. We have an in-house art studio because mommy likes to color. And, as my son will tell you, in this house, Mama is the boss. So coloring it is! I’m always on the lookout for “grown up” coloring books and this one, via Core 77, definitely fits the bill.


Lovely Polar Bears and five shades of white (snowball white, polar white, frost white, igloo white, and Arctic white) to color with. Now just imagine the fun of explaining the concept of color variations to a four year old who’d rather be crashing things into walls!

Available online at Toronto Zoo.

Editors Note(s): For the kid who has everything? A Hermes coloring book of course! Puts a whole new level of mommy-neuroticism into play when little Dick or Jane wants to express themselves by coloring outside the lines in this $130 scribble pad!

And for your budding fashionista? The Kate Moss coloring book!
