wonderful illustrations but disappointing that they are so small.
The illustrations are interesting and beautiful and there are a lot of them. They are worth the book.

However, the illustrations are usually less than half of each page which is a shame since often the copy does not fill the rest of the page. This makes the details pretty small to color without a sharpened instrument like a colored pencil or an ultra-fine tipped marker. Because of the reduced size, the lines of some of the woodcuts are quite close together with very little space for the coloring to show through.

The woodcuts are wide and horizontal in shape and perhaps should have been printed on the page from side to side the long way with the bound spine of the book on the short side. They could have been larger altogether and the copy could have taken a much smaller space across the bottom.

One benefit of the smaller size illustrations could be that it is easier to finish the coloring?

The Bible stories were quite cursory, more synopsis than story. If using this book with a child, it would probably be good to supplement what is given here. Some of the stories are disturbing, like Japheth sacrificing his daughter. And of course the illustrations show Cain killing Abel, rebellious Israelites being swallowed up in an earthquake or dying of poisonous snake bites, children being eaten by bears, Absalom being stabbed by David's soldiers--not the usual coloring book fare! The art is so stylized that it does not have the same graphic effect as a realistic drawing--but still..

Not sure why this is recommended as a kindergarten coloring book.

The art is beautiful. I was looking for a coloring book because I am giving one sister the coloring book about horses and wanted to find something that would be equally treasured by her younger sister.
