With so many new coloring books out in the marketplace, it is difficult to know which ones are the best. So here are 4 tips that may help you make a better decision the next time you are purchasing a coloring book.
- Nothing beats kicking the tires.
In other words, whenever you can physically flip through the pages and see, touch, and feel the book you are able to make a better decision. The in person shopping experience lets you test paper thickness and quality as well as see every page you are about to buy.
- Read reviews.
Books on Amazon will have a wide array of reviews to sort through. This is a great opportunity to see what others thought of the book. Remember to read both the positive and the negative reviews. Both types of reviews can prove to be helpful.
- Look for books that offer a sample page.
If an illustrator is willing to share a sample page of their book, be sure to download it. This is a great way to test drive the book before buying it online.
- Search for videos of the book.
Youtube is a great resource for getting a better look at a book before buying it. Many of the most popular books have been reviewed and uploaded to Youtube.
