All kids love to color.
Coloring pages that go with the story you’re reading are the best. I know, I know, you’re thinking “Great Joy, where am I going to find ones that go with my story?”
Thanks for the internet. Many authors now a days have coloring pages available on their web sites or blogs.
If you have a favorite book, look up the author and see if they have them.
You can also check out the illustrator’s site, they might have even more coloring pages you can printout for your child or student to color.
Worse comes to worse, trace over the pages in the story and let your little ones color them in.
