The USA is the origin and birthplace of coloring books. The true reason for 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. The other two teachers who aided this process were Johann Pestalozzi from Switzerland and the German Friedrich Fröbel who was his student. Educators from all over agreed that an education in the arts was essential in developing cognitive skills and enhancing peoples' perception of the world.
