Now I’d like to share a review of a fun and educational book for youngsters.
DOODLES: ALPHABET COLORING FUN by Setria James
This is a delightful book that will not only encourage children to learn their alphabet, but have fun while doing it.
Each page gives two examples of the alphabet letter to aid children with word to letter association. DOODLES doesn’t use stock illustrations for the examples. These adorable examples are original doodles by the author, Setria James.
Parents may want to copy the pages and have fun coloring with their youngsters while they learn such things as ’g for grapes’ or ’s or snail.’
There are 52 doodles for children to color which will help enhance their creativity, aid in the development of their motor skills, and unlock their imagination. This book is geared toward youngsters ages 2 to 6, but even adults will find it enjoyable.
Author Setria James has done a wonderful job with her debut book. She also offers several free downloadable drawing pages at her website. In addition, the site features a video where the author explains about her book and her drawings.

FTC Full Disclosure - I requested this book and it was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
Do you think the blogging community can make a difference whether it’s raising money for earthquake victims or encouraging youngsters to learn? I do. I think the blogging community is filled with strong, loving, caring people who reach out to help, encourage and be there for others. So today, remember you’re not alone - a friend is online with an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, and a heart to share.
