The meaning of Coloring Books together with their Uses


Coloring books contain images intended to be filled and coloured by using several tools such as pencil, crayons and sharpies. There are coloring books for both adults and kids. These coloring books, and coloring pages and sheets are traditionally printed out on paper or cardboard, and some books are made so that each page can be removed from the book once it is completed and used as a stand-alone coloring page. Many coloring books have a specific 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. 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 first coloring book was produced in America. This introduction was part of a process called the democratization of art. The person who influenced this process was an English artist named Josh Reynolds. Friedrich Fröbel from Germany and his Swiss teacher, Johann Pestalozzi assisted in inspiring this process. 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 extremely likely to prove extremely useful in his future as an adult. He might even end up finding his passion in life or a career resulting from developing an early artistic skill. Spiritual, social and mental growth are all enhanced in youngsters who participate in artistic activities.


Coloring books were the development of the McLoughlin Brothers. 'The Little Folk's Painting Book' was the earliest coloring book made by them in the 1880's. For this book, they worked with a lady called Kate Greenway, and they kept making coloring books until the 1920's. It was then that the McLoughlins joined the Milton Bradley firm. Richard Outcault is another man who really helped the progression of the coloring book. 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. 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

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 faster way of helping people acquire a new language. They are also utilized in certain classes as a way of enhancing creativity and knowledge of different topics such as geometry.
