I have exciting news today. Not only does Melanie Hope Greenberg have a new White House coloring page so your kids can turn the presidential residency any color they want, but I am pleased to announce that Melanie has illustrated a new book! I Love You Americanly, written by Lynn Parrish Sutton, is all about sharing the diverse beauty and culture of the USA with your family.
Did you know that this White House coloring page and picture book about America is the perfect therapeutic resource for election burnout? Let me walk you through it in four easy steps.
First: get your coloring page.
Download and print (by clicking here you agree to our terms of service* see below): White House Coloring Page
Second: color it in while tuning out the latest 2016 presidential race news. And, heh, if coloring the White House purple with green polka-dots will make you feel just a teeny bit better about this year’s election, go for it.
Third: fold up the bottom half and rest the White House on the table to create a backdrop for pretend play!
Is that the first woman president I see hanging out in front of the White House? Can you spot the secret service agent?
Fourth: get the book! You can order it directly from Melanie here.
I Love You Americanly, written by Lynn Parrish Sutton, and illustrated by Melanie Hope Greenberg is published by Kane Miller Publishing.
I Love You Americanly is a lovely picture book that celebrates diversity across America. It has a sturdy board book cover and thick, glossy pages so you can read it to your toddler and preschooler and know that it will survive. Each page spread contains Melanie’s trademark colorful illustrations and Sutton’s cheerful text proclaiming how many ways there are to love one another.
I love you strongly like Tornado Alley’s wind
I love you majestically like the Sierra’s rise.
I love you complexly like our national story.
I love you shiningly, freely, Americanly.
