I don't know who has more fun with this, me or the kids. The best is me and boys sitting on the couch working on drawings together. I liked it so much I created a flickr group to share completed pages.
It is one thing to be creative sitting in your room with a blank piece of paper, and it is another to be stimulated to thought by the beginnings of doodles given one by Taro Gomi. I simply adore the spur to creative thought that Taro Gomi gives us. It was the first doodling book I came across, and it remains the best I've seen.

Recommends it for: children who love to draw.
Recommended to ZZ by: My papa.
This is the best book! My parents got it at Barnes & Noble before we drove to North is like a coloring book but way better. It encourages my creativity and helps me to draw and be very clever in my art work. It was kind of expensive ($20.00) but my parents think it was worth it and they will get me a new Doodles book if they make a second volume.
This is really cool. I think I'll buy one for each kid. I'll have to wait to give it to them until they're maybe 8.
Such a fantastic book to help capture (anyone's) imagination!
so much fun for the entire family!
best coloring book ever
