Great size, great idea, fun for a doodler. This one is great for either a boy or girl. For the price, though, I feel like the pages feel too thin/cheap. Not horribly, though, it's just that I envisioned it a little higher quality.

This was bought as a have-a-gift-on-hand type present. I got two other of these types (Doodle, Imagine, Draw and Dream Big, Draw Bigger) and wanted a smaller option.

This is a great travel sized book. It's not quite as imaginative, and not quite as colorful as the other books...but it's the perfect size for a kid to tote around during a day outing, or for a car ride. It'll also be a really cool present, and would be suitable for a large range of ages (5-12ish) and unlike the others would be more accepted by either gender.

I'm pretty happy with the look and the quality of it, and would suggest it as a great stocking stuffer, present-add-on, or even a good present to be mailed. It is pretty small--about the size of an index card--but it quite thick.

My kids love to do these! I keep 2 in my purse, along with colored pencils, for the kids if we are leaving the house. They have been great for waiting in long lines, restaurants and even family functions! My 7 year olds love to shore me what they've come up with!

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.

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.
