Light of Heaven Saints Coloring Book - Adalee Hude

Light of Heaven Saints Coloring Book
ISBN 9781681923697

I picked up two copies of this and already wish I had picked up more. I grabbed one for my youngest daughter and one for a friend of the family. They have decided to color the same pictures and compare how they each did them the next time we get together. When I grabbed these books I was unaware of the companion volume, Light of Heaven Saints A Children's Book of Saints, and now have that on order. They both loved it and the friend in reading the back cover found out about the companion volume. The description of this book is:

“Celebrate the lives of 23 of our favorite saints! Illustrated by artist Adalee Hude, each coloring page is rich with detail, reminiscent of beautiful stained-glass works of art. Make each one your own using crayons, markers, or pens, bringing the lovely images to life!”

And the Saints in this book are:

     Saint Augustine of Hippo
     Saint Benedict
     Saint Catherine of Siena
     Saint Clare of Assisi
     Saint Elizabeth
     Saint Faustina
     Saint Francis of Assisi
     Saint George
     Saint Gianna Beretta Molla
     Saint Joan of Arc
     Saint John Paul II
     Saint Joseph
     Saint Jude
     Saint Kateri Tekakwitha
     Saint Maria Goretti
     Saint Martin de Porres
     Saint Mary Magdalene
     Saint Patrick
     Saint Peter
     Saint Teresa of Calcutta
     Saint Thrse of Lisieux
     Saint Thomas More
     Holy Mary, Mother of God

This is an excellent coloring book. The paper weight is nice and heavy. The pages are single sided. And the pictures could be colored by anyone from a young age to the later years in life. Some have very fine details but can be done separately of as groups for younger artists. And as my daughter works through the pictures I can share with her about the saints and their stories. 

This is a great volume, and I look forward to watching the pages be colored one by one. The artwork is great. I am thankful I picked up this book and will be getting more copies to give away as gifts. 

Note: This book is part of a series of reviews: 2020 Catholic Reading Plan!
