What to Expect: Coloring, Creativity, Imagination, Child Author

There are literally hundreds of coloring books out there—what makes The Official Doodle BoyTM Coloring Book so special, however, is that this coloring book was created by a kid, for other kids.

Pretty much every kid loves to color, but did you know that coloring is physically and mentally beneficial, too? Coloring and drawing can help kids improve their fine motor skills and focus, as well as their creativity. Research also indicates that coloring can reduce anxiety and stress, leading to happier and more relaxed kids. Psychology suggests that coloring activities can also improve color awareness, help establish boundary and spatial awareness, and generally support cognitive development. And the best part? It’s fun!

Eleven-year-old author Joe Whale created this wacky masterpiece as a way of sharing his love of drawing and coloring with other kids, and his out-of-the box doodles are a bit different than the usual Pixar- or Marvel-themed coloring books for kids. From one-eyed monsters to a skate-boarding skull, the designs are fun and unique, and kids are sure to have as much fun interpreting them as coloring them. The thick lines and chunky shapes make it perfect even for kids whose motor skills are still developing.

Best of all, Whale’s The Official Doodle BoyTM Coloring Book serves as an inspiration and proof that it’s a-okay to doodle all over everything.
