Both Melanie and I encourage kids to create their own art from their boundless imaginations, but it cannot be denied that coloring pages are useful for restaurants and quick entertainment. Are you in the NYC area? You can cheer Melanie on in the Bike the Branches Brooklyn Public Library tour, and then head into a local branch to read one of her books.

Turn the city and country coloring page into an activity:
Many of Melanie’s illustrations can double as activity pages. I think it would be cute to cut these two scenes out, glue them to cardboard and create a backdrop to a play scene. You could even turn her multicultural kids into stick puppets or include the 3D pizza parlor and school. Or, battle it out between East Coast and West Coast Melanie’s New York City coloring page and a view of Los Angeles.

  1. Thanks for the fun write up! What a cool idea to use the panels as stage backdrops. Finger puppets can apply here as well. Enjoy!

  2. Coloring was one of my all-time favorite things to do as a kid. I can’t handle the smell of the crayons anymore *sigh* soooo…

    And as always, clever ideas, Erica! :D
