What do an ice crystal and the iris of an eye have in common? Each is a mandala, a design organized with a center, four compass points that can be contained in a circle, and some form of symmetry. Children respond instinctively to mesmerizing mandala patterns; coloring them is a right brain activity that brings a sense of calm, focus, and tranquility. This contemplative shared activity will appeal to adults and children. 22 original 8" designs; perforated pages pull out neatly. Ages 4 and up.
