Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas has not been in the United States Senate a year and he already has his own children’s coloring book, called “Cruz to the Future,” thanks to a company in St. Louis called “Really Big Coloring Books” (RBCB). The coloring book, announced on December 6, 2013, has a picture of Cruz standing next to a tree with sun flowers, with word inscribed on the branches and leaves such as “U.S. Constitution” and “Freedom.”
The company describes “Cruz to the Future” as “a non-partisan, fact-driven view of how Texas Sen. Rafael Edward ‘Ted’ Cruz became a U.S. senator and details, through his quotes and public information his ideas for what he believes will help America grow. Cruz has openly identifies with the Tea Party and garners support from the Republican Liberty Caucus and many independents including democrats.”
Really Big Coloring Books has a large line of coloring books, most of them not having to do with political figure, though it has a line of U.S. presidents books and a special commemorative book featuring the late Nelson Mandela. CBS News reported that a previous politically oriented coloring book, “The Tea Party Coloring Book for Kids” garnered a great deal of controversy and even death threats.
