Children’s Activities
A number of the pages on this web site for our children's books include activities, such as coloring pages. Click on one of the links below to go to the Activities section on that page to see what is waiting for your children!
  • The Conference of the Birds web page includes a coloring page of the leader of the birds, the Hoopoe.
  • The Dreidel That Wouldn’t Spin: A Toyshop Tale of Hanukkah web page includes a coloring page printout of a beautiful dreidel, just waiting for some colors. There is also a crossword puzzle based on characters and events that make up the last two pages of the discussion guide for Dreidel (a 288KB pdf file). The discussion guide is usually used in classroom settings, but the crossword puzzle is just as much fun for children who have read the book at home.
  • The Fantastic Adventures of Krishna page features two coloring pages: one of Krishna playing his flute, and one of a ring of Krishnas dancing in joy with the cowherd girls of his village. Even young children can color in the first, while the second one is probably better for older children.
  • The Indian Boyhood page features a coloring page of a young Plains Indian warrior riding his leaping horse into battle. Space is left around the figures on the coloring page for children’s imaginations to fill in details of the prairie grasses and flowers found on the illustration in the book.
  • The Knight, the Princess & the Magic Rock web page has a coloring page of a courtly scene: Bijan arrives on his war horse at the palace of his love-to-be, Manijeh, which will also be the cause of his epic trials.
  • Never Say a Mean Word Again: A Tale from Medieval Spain features two boys locked in a personal feud that needs some quick resolution. This coloring page shows Samuel and Hamza running. The page is waiting for color—for the clothes of the boys, for the ground, for the surroundings, etc.
  • The Olive Tree is a book about two children who are neighbors and who have to figure out a way to avoid becoming embroiled in the conflicts imposed on them by their circumstances. In this coloring page, a tranquil bird is examining some olives and leaves from the tree that is the present cause of conflict.
  • The Otter, the Spotted Frog & the Great Flood: A Creek Indian Story is a book full of very colorful illustrations of animals, nature scenes, and sometimes dream-like respresentations of great cosmic events. We have a coloring page of the main character, Listener the otter, standing up, along with Spotted Frog, the one who warns Listener of the great flood to come.
  • The Pandas and Their Chopsticks web page includes a link to a printable jpg image of the tiger and the fox from the fable “The Fox Who Was King of the Forest.” The image is quite detailed and may be best for older children. Bright oranges will be needed!
  • The Pine and the Winter Sparrow web page includes a link to a printable jpg image of the Sparrow, ready for coloring in detail. This image is large and should be good even for younger children.
  • The Saint Francis of Assisi web page offers two coloring pages of scenes outside the town of Assisi. One is of three knights in full armor on their war horses, and the other is a contrast: St. Francis himself followed by a line of monks, walking on the hills outside the town.
  • The Tipi: Home of the Nomadic Buffalo Hunters web page also has two coloring pages, but these are a bit more complex. You can print out two pages of tipi cut-outs, color them in, paste them together, and set them up. Tip: wooden skewers should work well as tipi poles for the cut-outs.
