Designs for Coloring Leaves: Book of the Week GIVEAWAY from waddleeahchaa.com

Book of the Week GIVEAWAY: Designs for Coloring Leaves by Ruth Heller

Why we love this book:

My children are not much interested in coloring books. Last year when I found Designs for Coloring Leaves, I took a chance on what I felt was a more advanced and open ended coloring book. Ruth Heller’s design book features thirty-one original black line leaf illustrations.

Last fall, my kiddos used Ruth Heller’s Leaf Designs to create mixed-media Leaf Art. The detailed leaf illustrations are especially nice for my South Texas kiddos who rarely get to experience a vibrant show of fall color. Quite a variety of leaf species are highlighted. Each leaf design begins with one great big leaf displayed on the page. The next page displays two leaves. The third page repeats the leaf design over and over again in small format. The pages are one sided, making them easy to color with crayons, markers, paint, pastels, etc.
