What are coloring books?


A coloring book is a book that features lines, sketches as well as drawings which readers can paint and colour making use of items like colouring sticks, crayons and pens, etc. Little children are the ones who generally use coloring books, but of course, even adults have coloring books. These coloring books, and coloring pages and sheets are ordinarily printed out on paper or cardboard, and some books are manufactured so that each page can be removed from the book once it is finished and used as a stand-alone coloring page. Many coloring books have a particular theme or tell a story, which means the pages can't be torn out them or the book loses its purpose. Coloring pages very commonly include animation or cartoon characters that children are very fond of, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coloring pages or Cinderella Coloring pages. Naturally, these coloring books are used by big companies as a way of advertising these new cartoons or their other products. 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 young children can use stickers to stick on the pages and tell their own stories with them.


Coloring Books History

Coloring books first surfaced in the US. The reason for the emergence of coloring books and pages was the process of democratizing art. Josh Reynolds, an English artist was the person responsible for this process. The artistic works of Johann Pestalozzi who was an educator from Switzerland and Friedrich Fröbel who was a German pupil of his, also inspired this process. Various teachers and educators from all over the world knew the importance of art and the value of teaching art to people, particularly children. The development of cognitive abilities, problem solving capabilities and social skills were all parts of value art provided. The skills that a person develops in art education as a kid are incredibly likely to prove incredibly useful in his future as an adult. He may even end up finding his passion in life or a career as a result of developing an early artistic skill. As far as youngsters 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. For this book, they worked with a lady called Kate Greenway, and they kept making coloring books until the 1920's. That is when Brothers McLoughlin joined up with the Milton Bradley firm. Another man credited for the progress of coloring books is Richard Outcault. Richard wrote a coloring book in 1907 called Buster’s Paint Book which included a character he had created in 1902 called Buster Brown. The publication of this book was the inspiration 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.


Educational Uses of Coloring Books

These days coloring books are commonly used in schools for teaching children about different things. 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 demanding when compared with coloring pictures and associating those pictures with new expressions. 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. Images are also a wonderful way to enhance and improve memory, and to assist in the understanding of certain subject areas like geometry and astronomy. Major publishers have been creating coloring books that target adults since the 1980's. These books were directed at graduate students of anatomy and physiology to make their learning experience better.
