I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
My 9 year old daughter has already declared herself a tween even though I believe it is more accurate for ages 10-12. Big Sis has been getting rid of her "baby stuff" and has moved onto "tween stuff." She has already declared that she no longer likes "little kid coloring books" so these fun girly coloring books for tweens are perfect for her!
Believe in the magic of coloring as you escape to an enchanted world of unicorns, rainbows, leprechauns, mermaids, and fairies.

No wonder these cats are happy! Each of the cheerful felines in this new coloring book is filled with ingenious and delicate detail. Imaginative Russian/French artist Oxana Zaika presents dozens of joyful kitties to color with markers, colored pencils, watercolors, or gel pens. Oxana offers advice on basic art techniques from patterning and combinations to shading and color theory. Handy coloring guides include suggested color palettes and fully colored examples. Printed on one side only of archival-grade, acid-free, 200-year paper, each perforated page detaches easily for gifting or display. If you love cats and you love to color, get ready for hours of relaxing creativity.

Big Sis thinks these books are "perfect for a tween like me." I highly suggest using a nice set of high quality colored pencils to go with it to really make the images pop! The books are super cute and age appropriate while still giving her a fun outlet for her creativity. I really like that they have coloring tips in the beginning of each book and that throughout the books are empowering or fun quotes. The quotes in the cat book are all about cats! These would be perfect for long car trips and they make great gifts for girly tweens!
