March 2016: Coloring Books

COLORING
 
 
It started last spring. The coloring craze. We noticed articles. We noticed sales. We noticed that we were unable to order Johanna Basford's Enchanted Forest and Secret Garden because the publisher was out of stock.

 

Then the articles kept appearing, coupled with the more coloring books and more requests. The Woods Hole Public Library started hosting coloring events -- one of the first in the country! 

 

Interest in coloring books continued through the summer and into the holidays. Most of the major publishers were now publishing at least one if not several coloring books and were featuring them heavily. Surely we don't need all of them, we said. We were wrong.

 

The interest in coloring for all ages has remained strong for over a year now. Not sure you're ready to try? Minimal google search yields plenty of support for the activity:
