DINOSAUR COLORING BOOK FOR KIDS AGE 4-8

By

Must read šŸ†

Adorable, simple dinosaurs for children to color with bold outlines and big pictures!

Synopsis

I bought my first coloring book when my son was only 3 years old. I was pleasantly surprised to see him so "kidnapped" intent on filling the spaces, drawing after drawing. They were simple designs, but over time he wanted more and more complex ones.

Children's colouring books are not just a simple collection of drawings designed for their entertainment. And you probably agree with me.

They encourage the development of specific qualities:

āœ“ help develop manual strength and precision by improving their handwriting;

āœ“ coloring takes time and concentration, developing patience;

āœ“ finishing a drawing is a challenge that increases self-confidence;

āœ“ the movements used for coloring stimulate the muscles of the wrists and fingers, developing their motor skills

This is a delightful dinosaur coloring book for young children with simple pictures, bold outlines, and cute dinosaurs.


I know many children are fascinated by dinosaurs and the older ones may even be able to name them. Perhaps the author could include the names, too, along with each picture.


The author mentions why color pencils are superior to markers for coloring and I found it insightful. A knowledge of child psychology and development certainly helps when creating books for children. I also learned that coloring helps children develop patience apart from hand-eye coordination.


I liked the fact that there are no instructions for the child to color in a certain way or use specific shades. I feel it allows children to exercise their imagination without being bound by rules. Only one page has color-by-number instructions, whereas the rest of the pages have big, simple pictures of dinosaurs--some with backgrounds too.


A few pages at the end have multiple dinosaurs but it never looks busy or unappealing for young children. I feel a lot of thought has gone into creating this coloring book--it's not just a bunch of pictures thrown together.


I'm looking forward to introducing this book to my preschooler and I'm sure he'll have a good time coloring in.
