You Add The Rainbow - Adult Coloring Book (Rainbow Works) (Volume 1) by Tit Elingtin and Erin O'Riordan is a coloring book for all ages. Themes like mazes, abstract designs, butterflies etc are covered by this tension reliever. There is a good collection of templates with each of them greatly different from one another, ensuring the possibility of holding one's uninterrupted interest. This is a convenient way to occupy oneself on planes, in front of the TV, in coffee shops, or any other place where one is forced to while away time, with or without reason. This is a useful book, even more so as a last resort when things do not fall into place as they should.
The therapeutic benefits of art are nothing new; it's a concept that practitioners use with patients of all ages. You Add The Rainbow by Tit Elingtin and Erin O'Riordan makes it easy rediscovering the analog pleasures of coloring inside the lines. Those of us who have had occasion to spend prolonged hours in front of the monitor will vouch for that, I am sure. The benefits of such hobbies are known to be many; task completion, fine motor control, story telling (why did you color it that way?), language development, and the calming effects are only some of those. Remember, psychiatrist Carl Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, prescribed coloring to his patients. This is a helpful book, a good companion in whatever we would like to be busy with.
