Saint Louis, MO (PRWEB) May 31, 2012

The creation of "African American Coloring Books" as a stand alone e-commerce site inclusive to artists, publishers, authors, writers, educators, parents and kids, offers a unique educational and marketing opportunity. Taking the high-tech industry of the internet and combining it with the timeless low-tech fun of coloring, this new site provides a global platform to Buy, Sell and Create coloring book ideas.

Since prehistoric cave drawings and the pyramids, people have used coloring as an expression and educational tool. Everyone is invited to come and play and color. Wayne Bell, Founder and President of RBCB commented, “We understand that approximately 12 million children in North America learn to color every 18 months. This is where our company services enter the picture: we offer exceptional opportunities to many individuals and interested parties. To our company, coloring books are not a cheap imported commodity, they are a specialty product for children and we make books a brand!”

The goal is to promote the "African American Coloring Books" website, its contents and the authors to thousands of retail stores, schools, acquisition librarians, bookstores, book related web sites across the US and in additional countries. Here is a great opportunity for writers and authors -- whether they are established or unpublished -- to express themselves through a variety of avenues and receive guidance in attaining publishing success.

Headquartered in St. Louis, MO, Really Big Coloring Books® (RBCB) is an inclusive multi-cultural company that has been providing fundraising opportunities and children's teaching and learning tools for over two decades. The company products are multi-cultural and many are bi-lingual in multiple languages used by educators, parents and children between the ages of 2-13 years old. Known for market leading positions, their products are classic, colorful and unique.

Really Big Coloring Books, Inc.® operates four divisions; Retail, Fundraising, Internet and Creative Development.
