Filled with images depicting people, places, and events in state history, Coloring Texas is a treat for all ages. Artist Deran Wright’s carefully researched drawings depict such familiar characters as Santa Anna and Sam Houston; lesser-known personalities such as Corrine Williams and Davey O’Brien; and unnamed Native Americans, Buffalo Soldiers, ranchers, oilmen, and others who inhabit the story of Texas. Educational captions written by Gregg Cantrell and translated by Arturo Flores accompany Wright’s work. Coloring Texas will be an entertaining historical refresher and stress reliever for any adult, but teachers will find that it highlights many topics covered in TEKS, while the bilingual descriptions make it especially useful in ESL classes.
