Pocketdoodles for Kids is the perfect pocket-sized guide for drawing, doodling, coloring, and thinking. Best-selling author Bill Zimmerman invites doodlers of all ages to not only draw but to be inspired to stretch their imaginations and take their minds on a mini-vacation.
Inside are interactive picture and word prompts that will encourage youngsters (and adults) to write, doodle, draw and color on the pages. For example, you'll find storyline doodle pages on which you are given picture elements and instructions on how to complete the drawings.

My grandchildren live away from me. For Christmas I gave 5 of them this book. i thought it would give them something to do during the long drive home. But they started on them right away. They had a lot of fun with them.They would draw something silly and show it off and they would all laugh. there was a 10 yr. old, 3 9yr. olds and a 5 yr. old.
I didn't realize it was so much smaller than the other books I purchased with this though.
This is a great book to take along to a restaurant or anywhere else your kids may have to wait awhile. My daughter enjoys filling in the drawings with her own imagination.
