The black and white drawings in this coloring book come from LuckySports' "Adventures in SportsLand" Bully Series. These non-violent books subliminally teach children how to better understand the handling of bullies. This bully series is aimed toward children who are just beginning to interact with sport teams, coaches, fans and players. These fun stories serve as an excellent tool for an adult to start a conversation with a child about bullies, good behavior, playing fair and most important - just having fun.
The 1960's ushered in one of the most quickly wide-spread trends up until that time...the American cowboy. This was due in part to the acquisition of television into many of the homes of the baby boomers. All of us who were 'cowboys' during this time still feel a connection with each other. From that vantage point we moved on to the days of go-go boots and from there to being flower children and wearing peace symbols and fringed vests. Our clothing became a way of expressing who we are at an individual level, rather than just an expression of our class or socio-economic status, as had been the case in the past. We enjoyed being able to express both our collective spirit and our individual natures through our clothing choices. Perhaps we haven't always realized the extent to which clothing trends and experiences shape us into the people that we become on the inside. Is it possible that our character and integrity are affected by something as simple as our clothing? It's worth thinking about and remembering those significant clothing experiences along the way.
