Coloring Books: The Ultimate Stress Relief!



Coloring books are a childhood staple, a rainy day activity, stress-reliever, and catalyst for creativity. They're a great gateway into relaxing the mind and finding some inspiration. But did you know that they can also be educational, and that many are published by the government? Not only does the McWherter Government Publications department have many in-print coloring books, but the U.S. Government Publishing Office makes coloring books available in an online format to print out and color whenever the mood strikes!
