A coloring book is a book for children with line drawings that can be colored with colored pencils . It consists of several pages with different motifs . Often these are linked by a topic such as "farm" or "sea voyage". Coloring in the line drawings in a coloring book is intended to promote concentration and fine motor skills rather than creativity.
