Free Porcupine Coloring Pages

I’m a little late with these porcupine coloring pages, but they are finally done. This is one of those times when paining an animal was way easier than making an outline! I hope your little one enjoys them along with them story, as much as mine does.

Change is good

Every month my daughter wants something knew. Those changes can be hard to keep up with, but I need to be on top of things. If I haven’t put new pages into her bag, I end up creating them on the fly. Those blank pages I keep in the bag get used up quick, and she colors them immediately. She is happy, but I don’t get a chance to copy them for future use. It seems like a wasted opportunity. I suggest marking a day on your calendar each month to change out your child’s coloring pages.

This month I’m putting in my Purple Porcupine pages. These pages go with the story book “The Little Purple Porcupine”, one of my daughters favorite readers.

Free Fall Coloring Pages

Fall is officially here, even if you can’t tell in Texas. Here its hot and humid, but hopefully its beautiful and crisp where you are. Bugs are still out in force but we dream of fall leaves, and see squirrels hording nuts everywhere we look. I feel inspired, how about you?

Change is in the air.

Just like the seasons, when my daughter wants changes, I need to be on top of things. One way I do that is by changing up her travel bag. I still keep a few blank pages in there, but I pull out last months unused coloring pages and file them away for later, and insert all new coloring pages. This month I’m putting in my Fall Coloring Pages.

Bubbles and the Big Race Printable Bookmarks

This one is for the fans of my Bubbles the Bubble Blowing Dragon. The bookmarks match up with his newest book “Bubbles and the Big Race”. If your not familiar with it you can read about it in another post here. Or check it out on amazon here.

Make it a treat or a reward

Bookmarks are an easy and popular treat to give to book loving kids. Even if you and your kids are not familiar with Bubbles the Bubble Blowing Dragon these book marks are sure to be a hit!

I make these a reward because I find that any gift I give is treated better if my kids think they have earned it. Try rewarding a wiggly child who manages to sit through a whole story, or better yet, reward a begging reader that reads a book to you!

Printing Instructions.

To print these bookmarks put 8.5 x 11 white cardstock into your printer and make sure it is ready to print. Then click the link above. It should pop up a new tab or page with both pages. Print as you normally would, stopping to flip the page so that it is two sided.

After printing them, cut them apart along the dotted lines and enjoy. The second side of the bookmark has a place for you or your child to right their name. That way if you have more than one child it is easy to remember who’s bookmark belongs to who.


Remember only laminate after they have colored it. Laminating isn’t required, but it does extend the life of the bookmark.

Copyright reminder

These bookmarks are free for you to print and hand out, but they are NOT for you to sale or post on any site.

Free Coloring pages for Bubbles and the Big Race

Keeping kids engaged

Coloring pages are a great way to help kids stay focused. Often something as simple as a coloring page can help because the child needs to moving in order to focus on the words. Its a trick that teachers in classrooms use all the time. So its easy to see how using coloring pages outside the classroom are just as effective.

Keeping kids engaged is the biggest reason I provide coloring pages for most of my books. Kids need to be engaged to remember the lessons. The best way to do that, is provide opportunities that use as much of their brains as we can.

Other tips, ask your child questions. My books often have built in places where questions fit, don’t hesitate to stop and get your child involved in the story.

I’m not the only one with elephants on the brain. With an upcoming movie, and the general popularity of elephants in the baby section of most stores, I hope you all find my elephants fill a need for your little one, just like they did for mine.

Fun Fact

There really are pink elephants in Africa! I was surprised too, but once I new I had to share the information. No they aren’t born pink, but the dirt in the area they live is bright red, and when it dries it turns the elephants varies shades of red and pink. How cool is that!
