My Rating: 5 stars

My Reviews: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I remember when I started with coloring books as an adult. I had just had a really stressful day at work, and was eagerly awaiting the weekend long training for Godly Play at church. The training opened up, and we were all invited to take one of the coloring pages to color. I remember how my mind and body went from stressed to peaceful as it was forced to only concentrate on that one section, that one color, just that one. I used to joke that I needed color therapy to calm myself after having a stressful day. A year after that, adult coloring books started trickling into the market, and now you can find them anywhere and everywhere.
I loved getting this coloring book. Not only is the theme around Christmas, but each page has a different date attached to it, from December 1st to December 31st. The cover has gold foil and blue coloring, with a fun lettering, making it both modern and beautiful. The illustrations from Lizzie Preston are absolutely gorgeous throughout the book, and each day is intricate enough to last at least a few hours of coloring.
