This month’s multicultural children coloring page from children’s book illustrator Melanie Hope Greenberg might just be my favorite yet! I think it’s the perfect coloring page for January when our country is celebrating the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., who worked tirelessly so that all children would have reason to smile just like the kids Melanie has drawn! Click on the image to download and print the coloring page for your kids.
Melanie’s illustration was first published as a greeting card for the Children’s Defense Fund, an organization that she starting working with back in 1993. You can read about Melanie’s association with CDF on her blog, Mermaids on Parade.
If you live in the NYC area you can meet Melanie this Sunday at the Hip Tot Festival in Brooklyn.
More about Melanie:
Melanie Hope Greenberg is an award winning author and illustrator of more than 15 children’s books, including Good Morning, Digger, Down in the Subway and A City Is. Her latest book, Mermaids on Parade, set in Coney Island, has become a bookshelf staple for summer-loving kids. It was selected as a Bank Street Best Book, and for the Texas Reading Club and PBS Kids Summer Reading Lists.
Melanie is a strong supporter of parents and caregivers and would love to connect with you on her facebook page. You can also visit Melanie’s Blog to find out how to link to her personal Amazon seller’s page or PayPal link and find out how you can get one of her books autographed. They make lovely gifts, especially for kids who might like diggers or mermaids. You wouldn’t happen to know any kids like that, would you?
This coloring page and others will be collected on a Pinterest board.
