The meaning of Coloring Books together with their Uses
A coloring book is a book that features outlines, images plus drawings which readers can paint and colour utilizing items like colouring sticks, crayons and pens, etc. Kids are the ones who generally use coloring books, however, even adults have coloring books. Coloring books and coloring pages are designed on cardboard sheets or papers. Some of the coloring pages are sold separately or can be torn off from the coloring books that are made to allow that. Many coloring books have a special 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 small children are very fond of, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coloring pages or Cinderella Coloring pages. These are commonly used as advertising materials for upcoming cartoons or animated films. Other activities available in coloring books and coloring pages are: puzzles, connecting the dots, and mazes and number games. There are also types of coloring books where small children can use stickers to stick on the pages and tell their own stories with them.
Coloring Book- The History
The earliest coloring book was produced in America. The actual cause of the emergence of coloring books and pages was the process of democratizing 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 helpful to all because it developed cognitive abilities, and enhanced peoples’ understanding of tangible things. Education in art also facilitated a person’s ability to develop skills essential later on, specifically those relating to finding a suitable future job. Spiritual, social and mental growth are all enhanced in young children who take part in artistic activities.
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. 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. 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 this book was the impetus 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.
Educational Uses of Coloring Books
Almost every classroom for young children and preschoolers has a coloring book available somewhere, as these books are used to educate children on a number of topics. The topics for coloring books cover everything under the sun, like flowers, cartoons, alphabets, and even fruits and vegetables. Images are easier to recall for young children, and coloring them is more exciting than other methods of learning, which is why coloring books are an excellent way of learning. Learning words through illustrations or photos is an excellent way of facilitating language learn in non-native speakers also. Not to mention using images to expand people's familiarity with certain topics like geometry, which require graphic assistance to help understand the theories. Major publishers have been creating coloring books that target adults since the 1980's. These books were directed at graduate students of anatomy and physiology to make their learning experience better.
