I'm so glad I bought this! I bought it for my 7 year old daughter (I bought Doodles for my other dd) and both girls were absorbed for a while with the books. The pages have much more than just pictures to color - it has little starter drawings and asks you to complete the picture. It's so perfect for the older child who is a bit beyond just coloring in the lines, but still provides some structure. Knowing how to read will make this book a more enjoyable experience for your child. Also, it's a very thick book - I originally bought it as a stocking stuffer, but it's way too thick for that.

This book is a must have. It is great for developmental learning and gives children directions that are easy to follow. I have worked with kids for several years and wish these books were out a long time ago so I could have spread the word sooner. Truly great books.

This is a must have book! My children typically are quickly bored with coloring books----but this is so much more than a coloring book. It encourages the children to add their own imagination and DRAW and DOODLE along with the artist. Taro Gomi's style is very whimsical and not intimidating for a child to add on to. My children LOVE their books and treat them almost reverantly. When the book is finished you have a THICK book of all their work in one book---sort of like an artbook. I know some people may be a bit turned off initially by the price---but its worth every last cent. Its a VERY THICK book that will keep your child's attention and nurture their own creativity. My children don't dare a skip a page---they have been completing the book in order (not necessary, but that's how much they love it) as they want to do every last page. If this book seems too large for you, his latest book 365 days is very good and half the size (but equally thick).

Excellent kids coffee table book. I have this and two other Taro Gomi activity/coloring books. Close by are a large assortment of Crayola markers, crayons, and colored pencils. Visiting kids inevitably spend a good amount of time going through these books, drawing, scribbling or doodling as the picture and text inspires them. My grand-daughter loves sharing her drawings and stories as she completes each activity and I love the sharing time. The book has general scenes with text suggesting how to complete the drawing. For example, the drawing might be a large dinner plate on several pages with text to draw something yummy to eat. Or several pages of kids in a blank tee shirt with text to complete the shirt. Every page engages their creative process. My 7 y/o granddaughter will read through and select a drawing to complete depending on her mood and what happened that day. My nieces and nephews (ages 5-8) are similarly engaged by these books. They're excellent gifts and every child would enjoy their own personal copy. These are great de-stressors for adults too.

NOTE: This book is heavier weight paper that accomodates paints and markers as well as crayons and pencils. Another Taro Gomi book, Scribbles, has lighter weight paper appropriate for crayons and pencils.

I bought the Squiggles book for my granddaughter and the Doodles book for myself. I absolutely love "getting lost" coloring with pencils and markers. The book will eventually become an art journal. I write comments about what I've drawn as well as the date. Great for kids. Great for adults!

I have at least 4 of these drawing & painting books. I am a 37 yr old female & I can tell you this is terrific therapy. I am very creative when it comes to drawing & painting. These books are not just for children, adults can enjoy these as well. I have had several surgeries & experience great deal of pain & this is the only thing that takes my mind off pain & puts me in a relaxing peaceful place, for that I am very grateful.

We have the first two books, Doodles and Scribbles, and they were great. We had very high hopes for the third book. I don't know what happened. The whole book is full of about 7 categories, each one taking up 20 pages. It says giant doodle book on the cover, and it is giant in pages, but not in creativity and ideas. There are so many of the same blank things in a row (T-Shirts, Plates and Bowls, Mountains, under the sea) that you get bored. I do NOT recommend this book for your kids. If you want one that is fun and slightly like it, get one of the first two in the series.

I bought this book for one of my grandkids. When I got it, I thumbed through it. I liked it so well, that I bought myself one. Sometimes, to relax I'll pull out paper, colored pencils and markers and just doodle. This book lets me use my imagination and relax at the same time. Love the prompts for creativity.
