Share 8 Books to Celebrate National Coloring Book Day

Do you ever wish you were a kid again so you could take advantage of nap time, coloring and not having any grown-up responsibilities?

Unfortunately, time-travel (if it has even yet been invented) is not a method of transportation that is available to the masses. But you can take a break from your day and find some stress relief in coloring. #Adulting is hard, and I don’t want to think about the massive rent check I just wrote and the other monthly bills I have to pay. So I’m going to grab my colored pencils and my Harry Potter coloring book and celebrate National Coloring Book Day!

Looking for some adult coloring books for yourself? Check out these! Note: Some of them are not appropriate for children.
