“My 7-year-old son, Dennis, is a huge fan of yours. So am I! He was given your First Anti-Coloring Book ® as a recent birthday gift. He quickly filled it up with wonderful illustrations and creations.

“I rushed out to see if there were more additions and happily scooped up the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and the 5th Anti-Coloring Books®.
“As I looked through them I realized how wonderful a few would be to support learning we’re doing in my classroom.I’m certainly won over to your way of thinking. A beautiful philosophy indeed.

“Many thanks and appreciation for making the world more beautiful.”
Lisa Cox, Fourth Grade Assistant Teacher

“…I appreciate the spirit of what you suggest – provide them the stuff, a little structure and encouragement, and get out of their way. One great delight for me is to see how two boys the same age (fraternal twins) use the same materials in their own unique style.”
Susan Miller, Fort Collins, CO

“We’d like to thank you for helping us make the Anti-Coloring Workshop quite a success. We used an alien theme in conjunction with the book ‘Here Come the Aliens’ for an out-of-this-world experience.”
~Joan Strause and Terri Cook

“A big memory from my childhood was having a bunch of Susan Striker’s Anti-Coloring Books, which was a series of coloring books that forced you to use creativity rather than simply coloring within the lines. They were great. Even the title alone posits coloring books as something worth rebelling against, which is a funny sentiment to impress upon a kid, and one that apparently stuck with me. Our aim with CFG has always been to create a funny humor book first, and a fun coloring book second. So in terms of actually trying to make the coloring experience fun (aka our second priority), I always had those Anti-Coloring Books in the back of my mind.”
