Coloring helps the child to learn how to control the scale of his hand. Please note that when the baby is just started to draw he does not monitor the boundaries of the sheet, and the picture is not painted on the outlines, and even beyond.

It is believed that the company The McLoughlin Brothers (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McLoughlin_Brothers) invented the coloring books. They published a book called The Little Folks' Painting Book in collaboration with Kate Greenaway in 1880.
