Format: Paperback
My 8 year old really likes this book though it's a bit too big for his pocket :( He usually draws when he's bored, (when tv and gaming isn't allowed) this book is nice because it's gives him ideas about what to draw. For ex. The title will say "help these kids build the best sand castle on the beach", there is a black and white drawing of some kids with buckets and shovels and then lots of blank space for your artist to draw the sand castles.

The activities and artwork in this are entertaining for kids. However, it is a small book with thick binding. It doesn't lay flat, which makes it hard to draw and color.

I bought this for my 6 year old son for his birthday. He had a blast doodling all the way on our 500+ mile road trip. I thought the book was very fun and creative.

Format: Paperback
Pocketdoodles for Kids, written by Bill Zimmerman and illustrated by Tom Bloom, is for younger children, generally being aimed at kids ages 4-8. The younger siblings can have one, too! The drawing prompts on each page are very simple, so that even young children can read and understand them. Plus, it suggests ideas for basic drawings to make it easy for small kids. Draw what the clown is juggling or draw some extra scoops of ice cream are a couple of the pages in the thick, yet easy to hold book.
