Reader Reviews

jungle magic painting book
This book is fantastic! I have been looking for paint with water books for years and rarely find any. The colors are vibrant and as I paint with my daughter I am thinking I want a book for myself! This is far more relaxing that getting the right markers/pencils for those tiny little lines in adult coloring books, all you need is a brush and water. Wonderful product, I will definitely be ordering more and this may be my new go to birthday gifts for my kids’s friends!
