The Definition of Coloring Books as well as their Uses


A coloring book is a book where images are drawn using outlines and which readers can fill and color through the use of things like colorful pencils, pens, crayons and also other differing kinds of paint and colours. Little children are the ones who mostly use coloring books, but of course, even adults have coloring books. These coloring books, and coloring pages and sheets are generally printed out on paper or cardboard, and some books are fashioned so that each page can be detached from the book once it is completed and used as a stand-alone coloring page. Many coloring books have a special 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 coloring books are utilized by huge companies as advertising materials and ways of popularizing new cartoons or films. Lots of other fun activities can be found in children’s coloring books, like number games, mazes, connecting the dots and of course puzzles. There are also types of coloring books where kids can use stickers to stick on the pages and tell their own stories with them.


Coloring Book- The History

Coloring books first appeared in the US. A process called the democratization of art was the reason for the birth of coloring books. The man behind this process was an artist from England called Josh Reynolds. The other two educators who assisted 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 beneficial to all because it developed cognitive abilities, and advanced peoples’ comprehension of tangible things. The skills that a person develops in art education as a kid are extremely likely to prove incredibly useful in his future as an adult. He may even end up finding his passion in life or a career because of developing an early artistic skill. Spiritual, social and mental growth are all enhanced in little children who partake in artistic activities.


Coloring books were the creation of the McLoughlin Brothers. The 'Little Folk's Painting Book was the McLoughlin Brother's first coloring book, and they made it in the 1880's. Kate Greenway helped them with this first coloring book, and the McLoughlin Brothers' coloring book publication continued into the 1920's. Following that, the McLoughlin Brothers became part of the Milton Bradley company. Richard Outcault is another fundamental figure in the history of coloring books. A coloring book called Buster's Paint Book was written by Richard in 1907. He had created a character in 1902 called Buster Brown, and this coloring book he made was based on this character. This book is what began the process of companies using coloring books as a means for advertising their products. 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.


Educational Uses of Coloring Books

Almost every classroom for small children and preschoolers has a coloring book available somewhere, as these books are used to educate small children on a number of topics. The topics for coloring books cover everything under the sun, like flowers, cartoons, alphabets, and even fruits and vegetables. When kids are young, just memorizing words can be slightly boring and challenging as opposed to coloring pictures and associating those pictures with new terminology. This is why coloring books are such an engaging way of teaching kids about things. It is a known fact that connecting words with images is a fast way of helping people acquire a new language. They are also utilized in selected classes as a means of enhancing creativity and knowledge of different topics such as geometry. 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.
