‘Rock Him, Stone Him’: Children’s coloring book tackles domestic terror

A Missouri-based publishing company is defending its newly released coloring book that aims to teach children about domestic terrorism, saying it’s important for youngsters to understand the dangers in today’s world.

One of the Boston bombing suspects, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is featured on the front cover of the coloring book, parodying last month’s Rolling Stone cover, with a headline reading, “Rock Him and Stone Him,” the Daily Mail first reported.

Really Big Coloring Books has defended the new book, called “Tell the Truth — Tell it Often — Tell the Children,” claiming it was “designed to help youngsters learn and understand more about terrorism as they read or color,” the Mail reported.

“In regards to our initial comic publication, we listened to customer input and decided to cover the subject of terror,” publisher Wayne Bell said. “We are simply not going to put up with radical jihadists in this country. As far as radical Islamic jihad goes, you don’t win now, you don’t win here, you don’t win tomorrow, you don’t win next week, you simply don’t win.”

“America’s not going to let you win, and we want you to know that,” he added.

Older titles by the publisher include, “We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids Book of Freedom” and “The True Faces of Evil Terror.”
