Pocketdoodles for Kids

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.

Take a moment from the busy day to be playful with activities and ideas that entertain the creative muse. Doodle your way to a new hotrod, a new outfit, or a different body, or draw a picture of your favorite place or fantasize about your favorite pastime.

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. One storyline, for example, says: Design a pair of cool sunglasses that will set you apart from the crowd.

The book's small size (4x6 inches) makes it perfect for stowing in a pocket or book bag, so kids can enjoy the activities and doodling prompts wherever they go. With 272 pages, there's always a new idea for drawing and dreaming!

Doodling prompts include:

  • What is your birthday wish?
  • Draw someone for the clown to throw the pie at.
  • What's the weather like?
  • Design your own money.
  • Decorate this flying rug.
  • Draw a beautiful necklace for her to wear.

Great book!
This is so well done!  The perfect little book for a mom to pull out of her bag on an airplane or in a doctor's office to keep a kid from being bored.
