What are coloring books?


While most coloring books are meant for kids, you will find that are created for adults. Coloring books and coloring pages are produced on cardboard sheets or papers. Some of the coloring pages are available separately or can be torn off from the coloring books that are designed to enable that. 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. Coloring pages very commonly include animation or cartoon characters that young children are very fond of, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coloring pages or Cinderella Coloring pages. These coloring books are utilized by huge companies as advertising materials and ways of popularizing new cartoons or films. Coloring is not the only activity that can be found in coloring books, as other activities include mazes, numbers, and lots of fun puzzles. Another type of activity includes coloring books that come with stickers that can be attached on certain pages on these books.


Coloring Book- The History

The 1st coloring book was manufactured in America. The primary reason for the emergence of coloring books and pages was the process of democratizing art. The person who influenced this process was an English artist named Josh Reynolds. The other two teachers 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 improved peoples’ comprehension of tangible things. 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 might even end up finding his passion in life or a career as a consequence 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.


Coloring books were the invention of the McLoughlin Brothers. 'The Little Folk's Painting Book' was the first coloring book made by them in the 1880's. They collaborated with Kate Greenway on this project and the continued to publish coloring books well into 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 Buster's Paint Book made companies realize what a good idea it would be to use coloring books as a tool for advertising theirs good. Thus, advertising through the use of coloring books and pages started. The first coloring books were made with the thought that they should be painted and not colored, and despite the growing popularity of crayons in the 1930's, there was no change in this approach.

Coloring books are considered great tools for teaching young children a lot of things, which is why they can be commonly found in schools and classrooms. Coloring books covering endless topics can be found, such as numbers, animal names, and names of cities and continents.

It is a known fact that connecting words with images is a fast way of helping people acquire a new language.
