Sports Fun is a coloring book built for children by author Joyce Agbetunsin. Given the title, it’s obvious that this coloring book is all about sports! Each page is a clear depiction of a component of a sport and the book has pictures about (North American) Football, Field Hockey, Ice Hockey, and Kung Fu. As such, there is a good range of different topics to discuss and for your child to color.
Probably my favorite part of this little coloring book is the fact that you get to see so many components of each sport. In football, we see the player throwing, running, punting, and more. In hockey, we goalies and players on and off the ice, slap shots being taken, face-offs, and much more. What I’m saying here is there’s a pretty good variety of pictures, but they’re all within a few sports. It’s nice that your child will run through a series of pictures about one sport and therefore be able to expand their understanding of said sport greatly.
Now really, there’s only one thing that matters with coloring books when it comes to children. That is of course, will the child want to color it?
With this book, I found that my child wanted to color a few of the pages simply because the character grabbed their attention. All of the characters have a real personality that comes through, and I think that makes it fun for children to work on. Specifically, the Kung Fu people each had a different look and feel and each one made you think about a different part of the martial art. I also just love the fact that in most cases the Football player is cross-eyed…. That’s because I’m pretty sure it’s an accurate depiction of a Football player.
Just kidding everyone who’s ever played Football. Don’t hit me.
In any case, this is a fun coloring book with almost 40 pages of coloring for your child. I love that each page is an original depiction of a sport that my little guy is going to learn from; I love that I don’t have to buy another Dora, Dory, Lightning McQueen, or Paw Patrol coloring book; I also love the fact that such an original coloring book comes for only $7.99 USD and won’t break the bank. All in all, this is a great experience that goes to help an independent author who’s done some great work on her first coloring books.
