Colorful pages include white space for kids to fill in what's missing, or just to add color to certain elements. In People, emerging artists will see a page that shows basic body parts, then pages where kids can fill in missing arms, legs, hands, trunks, feet, etc. They can also add these things to a robot and a monster to further extend their facility and fun.
