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.

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.

We travel a lot & so I'm always looking for travel toys and activities for my kindergartener. Although this is supposedly for 9+ years and older, most the pages can be done by littler ones if you just read them the instructions. It's been great for us on trips. Nice, compact size.

My seven-year-old artist loves this book. It's not as limiting as a traditional coloring book, nor as intimidating as a blank page. One-sentence prompts on each page accompany PART of a simple line drawing, black ink on white paper. The child is to complete the picture, following the prompt. (Mine doesn't always bother to read the prompt, which is fine with me.) Some of the pictures are fairly elaborate, like the man talking to a bird with blank speech bubbles to fill in. Others are very basic, like the one with three squiggly lines randomly placed on the page with the prompt of, "What can you make with these doodles?" Still others are blank pages with prompts such as, "Draw a wild hairdo." This is a fun way to stimulate creative thinking, and it's great for in the car, in a restaurant, or in a waiting room.

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.
