What are coloring books?
Coloring books consist of sketches created to be filled and coloured using a number of tools such as pencil, crayons and sharpies.

Some of the coloring pages can be bought individually or can be torn off from the coloring books that are created to permit that. 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.

Coloring Books History
The 1st coloring book was produced in America. The main reason for the emergence of coloring books and pages was the process of democratizing art. Josh Reynolds, an English artist was the person responsible for this process. The other two teachers who really helped this process were Johann Pestalozzi from Switzerland and the German Friedrich Fröbel who was his student. Educators from different backgrounds were in agreement that artistic education was useful to all because it developed cognitive abilities, and enhanced peoples’ comprehension of tangible things. The skills that a person develops in art education as a kid are incredibly likely to prove particularly useful in his future as an adult. He might even end up finding his passion in life or a career as a consequence of developing an early artistic skill. Spiritual, social and mental growth are all enhanced in youngsters who partake in artistic activities.
The McLoughlin brothers are the two people who invented the coloring book. 'The Little Folk's Painting Book' was the 1st 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. After that, the McLoughlin Brothers became part of the Milton Bradley company. Richard Outcault is another fundamental figure in the history of coloring books. 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. This book is what began the process of companies using coloring books as a means for advertising their products. 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.
