“Pocket Doodles for Kids” by Bill Zimmerman Review and Giveaway.

I was recently given the opportunity to try out Bill Zimmerman’s latest children’s book called “Pocket Doodles for Kids”. This book is packed full of fun doodling activities for children of all ages (yes even us big kids…LOL).

The unique and interesting thing about “Pocket Doodles for Kids” is that it is not just empty pages for kids to doodle on. Each page has some basic sketches on them along with a thought provoking idea to challenge your children and spark creativity with their drawing or writing. Pocket_Doodle_Example2

The book is 4×6 in size, the same as a standard photograph print. It has 272 pages and is the perfect size to slip in your purse, glove box or even in your back pocket. It can always be handy because of its convenient size whenever your kids get restless and need something to occupy their time.

I think this would be perfect for long car trips, when you are out shopping or even while sitting at the doctor’s office.

So I gave a couple copies to my children to get their opinion of the book as well. They all loved it and said they liked how the book gave them ideas to start off their drawings and how it made them think.

The best statement I can give is, when I gave my children copies of the book they all disappeared to their rooms to check them out. I did not hear a peep out of any of them for almost 3 hours! When I went to check on them they were all sitting on the floor completely absorbed in the book.

You can check out other books and activities that Bill Zimmerman has done at his website Billz Treasure Chest. There are a lot of neat interactive activities for kids to do on the site.

Now for the details of the Giveaway!

I have prizes for 5 lucky winners which will each receive a gift bag filled with a sampling of some of Bill’s hottest books!

The books for the gift bags will be hand picked by the author himself so I bet they will be special!

What a great gift for your children or a great prize to have for that family vacation this summer.
