Doodles Ave™ Releases Tennessee State Coloring Book Just in Time for Summer Travel

The educational colordoodles-ave-volunteer-state-coloring-funing book company Doodles Ave has just released the “Doodles Volunteer State Coloring Fun” to introduce young adults to the landscape and history of the state of Tennessee.

Dallas, TX – Coloring books are back! Both children and adults are re-engaging with this pastime for pleasure and in the case of activity books, education. Doodles Ave™ is a brand name in educational coloring books. The company provides educational coloring and activity books that engage and educate school-aged children in a fun, artistic medium. The company’s mission has been to foster education and scholastic exploration through coloring. This summer Doodles offers a new coloring book that is all about the state of Tennessee.

“We’re always excited to release new activity books to our pint-sized customers,” says James. “All of us on the team remember our own childhood love of coloring and being able to provide an avenue for our kinesthetic and visual learners to both learn and express themselves through art is a blessing.”

Tennessee is the “Volunteer State”. Through the activity book, youth and others will be able to learn more about this state and its landmarks—something that Doodles feels will be useful in the coming summer months as families travel on vacation. The 44 page-coloring book takes children on a journey through the Smoky Mountains to the Nashville Zoo, exploring famous sites and symbols of this beautiful southern state. As they color the various sites and images they are learning about them at the same time and in a way that the brain will treat as important and memorable.

“Not everyone is as fortunate as we are to be able to not only use our creativity but to use it in a way that helps children,” says James. “We are helping kids learn and entertaining them at the same time. What is better than that?”

The activity book will be released on June 1st 2017 through Amazon

Skeleton of Tyrannosaurus Rex discovered-Today in History-Coloring Sheet

On this day in 1990, fossil hunter Susan Hendrickson discovers three huge bones jutting out of a cliff near Faith, South Dakota. They turn out to be part of the largest-ever Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever discovered, a 65 million-year-old specimen dubbed Sue, after its discoverer.

Amazingly, Sue’s skeleton was over 90 percent complete, and the bones were extremely well-preserved. Hendrickson’s employer, the Black Hills Institute of Geological Research, paid $5,000 to the land owner, Maurice Williams, for the right to excavate the dinosaur skeleton, which was cleaned and transported to the company headquarters in Hill City. The institute’s president, Peter Larson, announced plans to build a non-profit museum to display Sue along with other fossils of the Cretaceous period.

Found Inspiration

So this Mother’s Day, I took my mom to the zoo as a fun activity. She loved it! While there,
I was in spired to create some animal coloring sheets. My first animal coloring sheet is
the giraffe as it is one of my many favorite animals. I also learned some unique facts about
the giraffe:

1. Giraffes only sleep deeply for a few minutes at a time. Sitting on the ground, they bend their long necks down until their heads rest on their hind haunches.

2.  Giraffes live 20 to 30 years.

3. Giraffes can go for up to two weeks without water.

4. Giraffes tongue can grow up to 18 inches in length.

5. It takes 14 to 15 months for a baby giraffe to grow inside its mother’s body. When a fawn is born, it will be over 6 feet long, weighing
110-120 pounds.

Cool Fact for the day. Hope you enjoyed my interesting animal facts for the day.
