My virtues: Coloring book is a great first colouring book for young kids that helps you discuss the featured virtues through simple examples. The colouring pages are one-sided which is a bonus for younger children whose colouring skills may still be developing because marker ink won’t fade into another picture on the back. You could also cut the pages out of this book in order to display on the wall or on the fridge, and to encourage a young child to finish one picture at a time versus to draw a bit on each page.
The Virtues Activity & Coloring Book Ages 5-10 and The Virtues Activity & Coloring Book Ages 8-10 cover a number of virtues with larger and more detailed pictures as shown above. Questions at the bottom of the page inspire discussion on the theme. Some of the pages include simple activities versus straight colouring, as well.
Dottie & Me: An A to Z Coloring Activity Book – Celebrate What Makes Us Great! is a companion to the storybook The Good in Me from A to Z by Dottie but could also be used as a standalone resource. This book features less detailed pictures for colouring in but has activities that would suit children who know how to read and write already.
My Very Own Bucket Filling from A to Z Coloring Book is great to instill the message of kindness from the awesome Bucket Filler series and covers all the concepts described in the book Bucket Filling from A to Z: The Key to Being Happy. To find more recommendations and activity ideas to go along with the bucket books, check out my posts on the subject here.

I have never looked for themed coloring books for my 5 year old granddaughter, so this was a very nice surprise.
