Coloring Books History
Coloring books first surfaced in the US. A process called the democratization of art was responsible for the birth of coloring books. The person who influenced this process was an English artist named Josh Reynolds. 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. Different teachers and educators from all over the world knew the power of art and the value of teaching art to people, in particular youngsters. The development of cognitive abilities, problem solving abilities 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 might even end up finding his passion in life or a career as a result of developing an early artistic skill. As far as children were concerned, many educators found that art played a part in a child’s mental and spiritual growth.
The McLoughlin brothers are the two people who invented the coloring book. 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. It was then that the McLoughlins joined the Milton Bradley firm. 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

From alphabets to numbers you can find coloring books touching on every topic. Little children find these books easy and more engaging than other ways of learning as images are easier to remember and memorize compared to only words. 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 knowledge of certain topics like geometry, which require visual assistance to help understand the theories. Coloring books for adults and graduate level students have been created since the 1980’s by big publishers who aimed to target these groups and educate them on physiology and anatomy, as these images with various colors facilitated learning and memorizing also.
