Put a Feather on It!

Posted on July 07, 2015 by Gibbs Smith

Hello, my little fine feathered friends!

I had a bit of a vacation for the month of June. Flew all the way to San Francisco where I met some very rude seagulls, but it all turned out okay in the end.

This month we are going to be learning about a book from the fine folks at BabyLit called DoodleLit. You probably know that adult coloring books are all the rage at the moment, but I say, why should the chicks miss out? DoodleLit includes almost 300 prompts for doodling, coloring, and creating. You can use markers, crayons, colored pencils, paint, glue, and glitter. You can cut things out to hang in your room or use to throw a party. And you can paste things in that you find in nature or that you want to save. And it’s all based on the classics.

Take, for example, this page inspired by The Jungle Book:

It lets you create peacock feathers to fill a vase, decorate a hat, and cover a naked peacock! He certainly needs some modesty training. Goodness. By the way, did you know the peacock is the national bird of India? That is just one of dozens of fun facts you will learn in the pages of DoodleLit.

So until next time, get your little ones doodling away.

Sincerely, Professor Hawkins
