Krulik is the author and creator of several book series, beginning with Katie Kazoo, Switcheroo in 2002. The How I Survived Middle School series launched in June 2007. In July 2008, Grosset and Dunlap (a division of Penguin Young Readers) launched the George Brown, Class Clown series, a spin-off of Katie Kazoo, with the book Super Burp. Her mystery series for kids, Jack Gets a Clue launched in 2011. In 2013, she published the Magic Bone series, which follows the adventures of Sparky, a sheepdog puppy, who travels the world thanks to the magic he finds in a very special chew toy. The first two books in the series: Be Careful What You Sniff For and Catch that Wave were published in May. Krulik followed that series with Project Droid, a science fiction series of six books written with her daughter Amanda Burwasser, The Kid From Planet Z (a young chapter book series about a family who crashes down on earth and must follow the instructions of their leader, a talking cat named Zeus), and Princess Pulverizer, a series about a princess who wants to be a knight and must go on a Quest of Kindness to prove that she is up to the task. Along the way Princess Pulverizer meets up with a dragon who uses his fire to make grilled cheese, and a timid knight-in-training who has been nicknamed Lucas the Lily-Livered.
Developing New Skills. It is very important for children to develop their fine motor skills. Most children do not even realize that by coloring they are accomplishing this task. Having children complete coloring projects and printable coloring sheets will help children with many skills that will be valuable later in life. A peaceful, productive way for a child to pass her time is a coloring book and a package of crayons; whether in a waiting room, in the car, at school, or other places. It can be a healthy imaginative release and, for numerous parents, a much-needed respite! Let's be honest. The Internet is quite possibly one of the best and worst inventions to come around in a long long time. With it, you get the good and inevitably, you get the bad. It can help make you more productive in life and it can also cause you to be highly inefficient. Now, before we get off on a rant here I should clarify, this article is actually going to be about free colouring pages. How you may ask? Well, the way I see it, free colouring pages epitomize how the internet can help parents. And although it may sound like a stretch, I'll attempt to connect the proverbial dots that add up to my colouring pages conviction. The thing that I love most about colouring pages is that it allows me the opportunity to share a small aspect of my past with my children. Although they find it comical that some of the coloring page characters such as the care bears, tinkerbell, and strawberry shortcake were around when I was a child.
