The Chicago Coloring Book

Since I grew up in Chicago, I thought it would be fun to review a coloring book with scenes of Chicago. So, when The Chicago Coloring Book arrived, and I got to work.

Hahaha ... work.

Just like when I get a new cookbook and I choose something to cook, this time I had to find something to color. There were buildings, artsy things, signs, pizza, hot dogs ...

And of course I decided to color the hot dogs. I also wanted to eat the hot dogs, but Chicago-style dogs aren't exactly ubiquitous in Colorado. Sigh.

So I colored the hot dogs and got hungry.

This is one of the simpler items in the book - the difficulty ranges from pretty darned simple to things like the interior of the Auditorium Theater (which is where my college graduation was held) where there are a lot of bits and pieces to be colored.

Overall, I like the book. I probably will be coloring the buildings in crazy colors, and I'll be sure to add some graffiti to the train ... and I might add some crazy topping to the pizza, too. Because, what the heck, coloring is just plain fun.

Meanwhile, have a hot dog. Or two.

I received this book from the publisher at no cost to me.
