Book one tells a story about a small, sickly mouse named Despereaux who was born in a castle with his eyes open. Despereaux, unlike other mice, spends lots of time reading and particularly enjoys a book about how a knight saves a princess and they live happily ever after. One day while reading, he hears music that sounds like honey. He follows the sound and leads him to Princess Pea and King Philip. He sits at the king’s feet to hear the music and falls in love with the princess and speaks to her, but the king leads the mouse away because mice are related to the outlawed rats. Furlough, Despereaux’s brother, sees this and tells his father, Lester Tilling. Lester calls the mouse council; Furlough goes to collect Despereaux. The mouse council orders Despereaux to be sent to the dungeon because talking to a human is forbidden. When he goes in the dungeon, he meets Gregory, the jailer, who saves him because Despereaux tells him a story which he says that its light and light is precious.
That said make sure that the kid prints those coloring pages on a used sheet of paper and tell the kid not to waste paper. That way you will also make sure that he grows onto to become and environmentally conscious individual. So now to answer the how. And trust me; it's not as far-fetched as you may think. While the Internet is a fantastic place to watch videos, keep in touch with old friends, listen to new music, network, or participate in any number of other legal or otherwise illegal activities, it is an even better when utilized as a parental resource centre. And this is where our free colouring pages come in. How many times have you wished you had something new and handy to entertain you kids while you try to (insert any chore here) do the dishes, laundry, vacuum, etc... It takes you time to make time to spend that time. What a complete waste of time! The solution you ask? Open a webpage, Google a search, print off your find, and you're done. Your children will be more then occupied for the remainder of the time you need! The beauty of the Internet is in the resources it holds; every time, you can find something new. Are your children tired of drawing sea creatures? Print off farm animals. Are they not interested in drawing? Then print them out some word puzzles such as jumbles or crosswords. The point is, parents should look beyond the obvious functions the Internet provides and start using the web as the tool it can be in order to maximize their time. In truth, the vastness of the Internet and the multitude of resources available can be the true time-saver for parents. When kids are just starting to familiarize themselves with the names and the use of its colors, be sure that parents are there to guide them. You can begin to teach them the basic color of Dora's hair and clothes. Coloring pages are also a fantastic way to engage the busy hands and minds of your fidgety kids on vacation trips in the car or by plane. You don't need to scratch your head over the children's entertainment during the rainy days or how to distract them at the doctor's waiting rooms.
