Read Review
The act of being mindful is being aware of the present moment. The process of coloring becomes a meditiative process by which you are intently aware of colors, designs and motifs. You are living in the moment and the concentration and repetitive nature of the simple art of coloring takes over as you become oblivious to the stresses and strains of everyday living.

Mandalas, symbols of the cosmos, have for hundreds of years inspired those who gaze upon them. Color Yoursefl to Mindfulness will give you inner calm and peace as you connect to the shapes and symbols that create these powerful images.

Here we present 100 original designs of mandalas for Awareness, Forgiveness, Wisdom, Abundance, Creativity and Karma.

From DK Publishing and Smithsonian. Make Your Own T. Rex combines everything you need to make a model Tyrannosaurus Rex with an exciting and informative book about dinosaurs.

The model comprises 80 sturdy photographic “bones” that press out from 11 boards and slot together without the need for glue — so there’s no waste and no excess packaging. In addition to containing clear step-by-step instructions of how to build the Tyrannosaurus Rex model while exploring the anatomy, the book also explores behavior, and the environment of the perennially popular prehistoric reptiles.

Over 2 feet long when assembled, the model is based on a real Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton and is easy to build following the step-by-step instructions in the book. While focusing on different dinosaur anatomy for each stage of constructing the model, the book also answers questions like “why did some dinosaurs stand upright while others walked on all fours?”, “why did dinosaurs have different horns and frills?”, and “what was the world like when dinosaurs ruled the earth?”
