This month’s installment in our coloring girl series features a little girl who is very special to our Babbs – her granddaughter, Pippi Jean. Of course, that’s not her real name, but let’s just say that this illustration – created by talented Kimberly Kolb Eakin – represents one of PJ’s fav things to do in the summer, and that is … go to the beach.
Babbs and the rest of her family spent a few days at a beach in the Carolinas recently, and she caught this photo of PJ with her little boogey board. The kid stayed in the water till she was prune-skinned and salty eyebrowed. You know the look. And Babbs rode the boogey-board waves again and again, all day long, with her sidekick a few feet away.
We’re delighted to be working with Kimberly on creating healthy, outdoor-related coloring book pages that reflect our values and our mission here at Women’s Outdoor News, aka The WON.
Just in case you missed them, here are the other women in the series:
