Doodle your way to a happy journey

The Usborne Travel Pocket Doodling and Colouring Book is a handy pocket-sized book jam-packed with doodling, drawing and colouring activities perfect for keeping children occupied on long journeys.

Interestingly, a new report has found that French women use colouring in pictures with crayons as a method of calming themselves down in times of stress, and for reducing anxiety.

French publishers have started marketing colouring books specifically at adults - replacing pictures of kittens and clowns with images of scenery and architecture.

In fact, colouring books now sell more than cookery books in France.

The Usborne Travel Pocket Doodling and Colouring Book costs €6.
