The meaning of Coloring Books along with their Uses


These coloring books, and coloring pages and sheets are traditionally printed out on paper or cardboard, and some books are designed so that each page can be detached from the book once it is finished and used as a stand-alone coloring page. Many coloring books have a unique theme or tell a story, which means the pages can't be torn out them or the book loses its purpose. These days, it's very common to find coloring books of really popular cartoon characters or stories, such as The Little Mermaid Coloring Pages or My Little Pony Coloring Pages. These are commonly used as advertising materials for upcoming cartoons or animated films. Other activities available in coloring books and coloring pages are: puzzles, connecting the dots, and mazes and number games. There are also types of coloring books where little children can use stickers to stick on the pages and tell their own stories with them.


Coloring Books History

The first coloring book was created in America. This introduction was part of a process known as the democratization of art. Josh Reynolds, an English artist was the person responsible for this process. The other two educators who helped this process were Johann Pestalozzi from Switzerland and the German Friedrich Fröbel who was his student. Educators from different backgrounds were in agreement that artistic education was helpful to all because it developed cognitive abilities, and improved peoples’ knowledge of tangible things. The skills that a person develops in art education as a kid are certainly likely to prove extremely useful in his future as an adult. He might even end up finding his passion in life or a career as a consequence of developing an early artistic skill. As far as young children were concerned, many educators found that art played a part in a child’s mental and spiritual growth.


The creators of the coloring book are the McLoughlin Brothers. In the 1880’s they created a coloring book called The Little Folk’s Painting Book. Kate Greenway helped them with this first coloring book, and the McLoughlin Brothers' coloring book publication continued into the 1920's. Afterwards, the McLoughlin Brothers became part of the Milton Bradley company. Another man credited for the progress of coloring books is Richard Outcault. In 1907, Richard created a coloring book called Buster's Paint Book which was based on a character he had created in 1902 named Buster Brown. The publication of this book was the push that gave companies the idea of using coloring books for advertising purposes. These books were initially made to be painted instead of being colored, and despite the emergence and popularity of crayons in the 1930’s, this did not change.


How Coloring Books Are Used in Schools and Kindergartens

These days coloring books are commonly used in schools for teaching young children about different things. Coloring books covering endless topics can be found, such as numbers, animal names, and names of cities and continents. Images are easier to recall for youngsters, and coloring them is more exciting than other methods of learning, which is why coloring books are an excellent way of learning. It is a known fact that associating words with images is a magic formula of helping people acquire a new language. As well as using images to expand people's familiarity with certain topics like geometry, which require graphic assistance to help understand the theories. Since the 1980's, coloring books have been produced for adults. These books were made by publishers who were hoping to facilitate the process of acquiring knowledge on the topics of physiology or anatomy for students on a graduate level. As mentioned before, these images made memorizing and remembering the information easier.
