Dr Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes), a brilliant and successful vascular surgeon at Imperial College London, develops haemophobia – a fear of blood, forcing him to stop practising surgery. He obtains a post as the sole general practitioner (GP) in the sleepy Cornish village of Portwenn, where he had spent childhood holidays with his Aunt Joan (Stephanie Cole), who owns a local farm. Upon arriving in Portwenn – where, to his frustration, the locals address him as “Doc Martin” – he finds the surgery in chaos and inherits an incompetent receptionist, Elaine Denham (Lucy Punch). In series 2–4, she is replaced by Pauline Lamb (Katherine Parkinson), a new receptionist, and later also a phlebotomist. In Series 5, Morwenna Newcross (Jessica Ransom) takes up the post.
Studies and researches have shown that initial five years of a child are the most critical ones from the point of view of learning. Their capacity to learn new things is at its highest ebb during this period. Children of this age group can be compared to a piece of sponge that is ready to absorb any liquid that it comes across. These are the building years for children and we need to use this period for giving them rock solid foundation that can help them in building their mansion of life upon it in a way that it becomes an example for everyone else to follow. Parents do everything possible and within their reach to give their child a solid foundation. They try to give their child the right kind of environment and facilities so that their talent and abilities bloom in a nice way. Coloring pages can play an important role in letting children grow in the right way. These pages are usually used by parents and teachers to make the child aware of alphabets, animals, monuments, vegetables, fruits, numbers, etc.
Imaginations Run Wild: While decorating these pages, kids will often times experiment with various colors. How many times have you seen a smurf colored princess? With dinosaurs, kids will let their imaginations run wild, as they may be talking to the dinosaurs, or about the dinosaurs, or telling stories while they color in the page. Building an imagination is one of those important life skills in a well rounded individual that should be encouraged at a young age.
So the next time you need something for your kids to do, or you want to keep them happy and entertained, simply pull up your internet browser and start searching for coloring pages. You'll find an endless array of them available, and they are always right there, with no delay and no hassle. Best of all, they're entirely free, and you'll always be able to find exactly what you're looking for at any time.
It not just increases concentration skills, hand eye co-ordination and the picking up of colors, it is also a great chance for us grownups to get some quality time with our children. It is just so enjoyable to give feedback as your youngster gets more practiced and better at staying between the lines, or coordinating the correct colors to the right area on the character on the page.
