Gila Ben Goes to School

Gila Ben's A to Z Arizona Coloring Book being given out to students at Creighton Elementary School in Phoenix
Gila Ben, the Friendliest Gila Monster in the Grand Canyon State, is making his way to schools all around Arizona. Gila Ben's A to Z Arizona Coloring Book, being handed out to students by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, is a creation of mine. The Superintendent's office was gracious enough ask permission for the nonexclusive  reproduction rights and I was gracious enough to oblige. And, since our Arizona schools (kind of like artists) are perpetually underfunded, I was glad to provide the art and the rights gratis. It is my sincere hope that the distribution of the coloring book will be used only for sharing information about the fascinating things about my native state and not for political gain.

Sorry, I don't have any information about distribution of the coloring books but you can always contact the Superintendent's office about the needs of your school and for details about the Arizona Department of Education's version of the coloring book.
