This is one of the most substantial Christmas colouring books I've come across, with 128 single-sided pages packed with so many festive images that I don't think they've missed anything out! If it's not in this book it's not Christmassy enough ;) So what have we got? All the usual stuff like snowflakes, reindeer, snowmen, Santa, baubles, bells, gifts and stockings, plus a range of iconic religious symbols like the Nativity scene and celestial angels. There's even a page of 4 different renderings of Santa and how he is portrayed in different cultures, whether it be one with a holly-bedecked beard or one who carries a wicker basket of toys on his back for his list of 'nice' children!
I think that this may just be my go-to Christmas book, purely because it comprises of SO MUCH different content that is all really good quality! From timeless traditional illustrations to contemporary decorations, this book has it all. The paper is pretty average in thickness and doesn't have much tooth, but it certainly has the sheer quantity of designs to make up for its shortfalls. If you're looking for one all-encompassing Christmas book, you've found it!
Here's my finished pic of Santa in his sleigh :) I coloured him with Staedtler triplus felt pens (which are only now just starting to run out after using them loads since April!).
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. You can find it on Amazon here:
