What are coloring books?


Coloring books consist of images intended to be filled and colored by using numerous tools such as pencil, crayons and sharpies. There are coloring books for both adults and youngsters. These coloring books, and coloring pages and sheets are customarily printed out on paper or cardboard, and some books are produced so that each page can be detached from the book once it is finished and used as a stand-alone coloring page. Some coloring books may include a story that kids could follow, therefore the pages can’t be torn out of books. 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.

Certain types of coloring books come with stickers which can be added to the pages that the kids color. Thus adding more character and fun to the whole activity.


Coloring Book- The History

The 1st coloring book was created in America. This beginning was part of a process called the democratization of art. The man behind this process was an artist from England called 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 beneficial to all because it developed cognitive abilities, and improved peoples’ comprehension of tangible things. Educators assert that youngsters who take part in art education can be expected to develop emotionally, mentally, spiritually and also socially.


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. After that, the McLoughlin Brothers became part of the Milton Bradley company. Richard Outcault is another important figure in the history of coloring books. 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 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.
