As adult coloring books remain popular, we weren’t surprised to see “Edible Paradise: A Coloring Book of Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables” (Universe, 2016), centered on seasonal produce.

The 96-page edition by Jessie Kanelos Weiner, an American illustrator living in Paris, is divided by seasons, with line illustrations depicting items such as rhubarb, tomatoes, apples and tubers. Little accents round out the whole playful package: A squirrel nibbles at an acorn in one drawing, a caterpillar inches across a pepper on another.

After flipping through the pages and settling on a springtime rendering of peas, kohlrabi, asparagus and other vegetables, we realized just how soothing coloring our cauliflower any shade that strikes our fancy can be.

$16.95. Available via amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
