Coloring Books - What Are They?


A coloring book is a book which has outlines, sketches as well as drawings which readers can paint and colour implementing such things as colouring sticks, crayons and pens, etc. These coloring books, and coloring pages and sheets are traditionally printed out on paper or cardboard, and some books are fashioned so that each page can be removed from the book once it is completed and used as a stand-alone coloring page. Some coloring books may contain a story that small children could follow, therefore the pages can’t be torn out of books. Coloring pages very commonly include animation or cartoon characters that kids 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. 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 first coloring book was manufactured 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. The other two educators who served this process were Johann Pestalozzi from Switzerland and the German Friedrich Fröbel who was his student. Instructors from all over agreed that an education in the arts was essential in developing cognitive skills and enhancing peoples' perception of the world. The skills that a person develops in art education as a kid are very likely to prove extremely useful in his future as an adult. He may even end up finding his passion in life or a career owing to developing an early artistic skill. Educators assert that kids who participate in art education can be expected to develop emotionally, mentally, spiritually and also socially.


Coloring books were the innovation of 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. It was then that the McLoughlins joined the Milton Bradley firm. Richard Outcault is another primary figure in the history of coloring books. 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. 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.
