All Is Bright

About This Book-

Contemplate the promise and coming of Jesus as you create colorful designs.

Relax and retreat from the chaos of the Christmas season by reading these short devotions and meditating on Christ as you color. Your family’s Advent and Christmas will be transformed from a time of busyness to a time of rest with every page of All is Bright. Designed to reconnect you with the story of Christ’s coming, each day of rich devotion by popular author Nancy Guthrie–accompanied by intricate drawings–will lead you into a Christmas filled with worship and adoration.

My Review-

(because it’s totally not 5 days into Advent already and because everybody’s still desperately looking for an Advent devotional)

Well. What can I say? I really like this coloring book! The devotionals that go with the intricate coloring pages, the texture of the book, it’s just awesome!

Yes, it is slightly on the large side, and doesn’t easily fit in backpacks and stuff, but it’s really beautiful. There are devotionals for every day from December 1st to December 31t, and a corresponding coloring page each day. There are also several shorter devotionals and simpler coloring pages for families with young children, which I thought was really thoughtful.

I feel like the devotionals were quite generic and similar to most other Advent books, so it’s not particularly awesome in terms of the content. The devotionals are great for reading out loud, or for reading and meditating while one colors. The coloring pages are all fairly intricate and are fun to color. One con, as pointed out by mom, is that it could be hard to use over multiple years, because of the coloring pages. Unless someone has a lot of free time not me, it would be really hard to complete all the coloring every day. But then, nobody is required to color everything every day.

Overall, it’s a really functional Advent coloring book, complete with devotionals. (or should it be “a really functional Advent devotional book, complete with coloring pages?). Either way, I give it a

Thank you to Tyndale for sending me a free print copy of this Advent coloring book for my honest review; I was not required to write a positive review.
