A Tiny Treasury of Favorite Things by Sarah Janisse Brown is a very portable and adult-friendly coloring book designed to lighten a Mom's load by inviting her into some creative self-care. This relaxing coloring book is very small and would fit very comfortably in a purse.
68 whimsical, nature-inspired illustrations are included in this book. Many of the pages are not double sided which leaves space to write on one side and color on the opposing page. I really like that extra space for written creativity.
Most images also contain space around the central image for the owner to doodle or write additional thoughts inspired by the image.
I tried a variety of mediums on my coloring book. Crayons were often too bulky to work with in the tinier, complex pages, but worked perfectly for others. Colored pencils and gel pens are ideal. Markers will likely bleed through the pages.
Here are a few colored pages from inside my copy of this coloring book:

This coloring book is a great relaxation tool for me and I enjoy it very much.

I give this book 4 stars. I like that it can travel, but some pages highly detailed pages were a bit too tiny for me to color successfully. If it were just a bit larger I'd give it five.
