Oodles of Doodles!

If your looking for a way to entertain and delight your grade school child look no further than the Doodles a really giant coloring and doodling book. It stumbled across it quite by accident, its not your basic boring old coloring book.

Renowned children's book illustrator Taro Gomi invites kids of all ages to not only color, but also draw, imagine, and create. Unfinished pictures and intriguing prompts foster children's powers of visualization, and at nearly 400 pages, this book provides plenty of room to stretch the imagination.

It's interactive, the page indicates the directions; stating "its a tug of war. Draw the rest of the team" and the page has a team member from each side pulling a rope. Or a page filled with empty squares with names below, the directions request "draw faces that match these names." Simply cool!
