Jewish Designs for Contemplation and Calm
by Freddie Levin and Judy Dick - Behrman House Publishers
Coloring books have been at the forefront of quiet children’s activities for decades. Coloring “inside the lines” and choosing favorite colors from the Crayola box were the priority. Who doesn’t remember their excitement when they received that brand new box of 64 crayons?
Years have passed and coloring books have returned but in a 21st century way. Shalom Coloring by Freddie Levin and Judy Dick is a spectacular book for the Jewish home. The 34 black and white linear illustrations include Judaic motifs and symbols based on the Jewish calendar, holidays, celebrations, tradition and Jewish life. This new collection of exquisite imagery features complex illustrations and patterns that will inspire novice and expert colorists alike. To make the book more even meaningful, an inspirational quote or a brief biblical excerpt accompanies each image.
Both the amateur and experienced artist will enjoy this book. They can express themselves with color and imagination, while they relax, create, escape and have fun. Although Shalom Coloring has been created for adults, we think it is also perfect for the budding pre-teen artist, allowing each to produce their own unique design and personal creation.
We suggest coloring pencils to enhance each illustration…and guess what - Crayola makes some in a 50 pack box!
The publisher Behrman House is sponsoring a giveaway for KosherEye readers. Three budding artists will each receive one of these beautiful, meaningful coloring books.
