Miffy Draws Book Review

We love Miffy in our house and I'm delighted to be able to share with you one of the latest Miffy books available from the 14th August at Waterstones and all good bookshops.
Miffy Draws

The new Miffy books include Miffy’s First Day, Miffy Draws and Miffy Outdoors and I was lucky enough to be sent Miffy Draws for review.

Miffy Draws is a lovely wipe clean activity book full of Dick Bruna's wonderful artwork to finish off! There are prompts, games and challenges on each page, such as drawing a snowman, fashioning an outfit for Miffy to wear and drawing your own home next to Miffy's house.

The pages have plenty of creative space and sections with dotted line patterns and shapes to complete - these are all well designed with fine motor skills and learning to write in mind.

The book comes with a special Miffy (whiteboard) marker pen to use and the pages wipe clean with a cloth, we also used wet wipes and kitchen roll to clean each page.

Both my 3 year old daughter and 5 year old son have played with this book - both  have their own individual way of interacting with this book - Maegan likes to do the patterns and swirls over the images and Blake likes to add lots of details to the pictures.

As with any Miffy book I've come across, the colours are all bold primary colours and the content is unisex so all children can enjoy the books equally.
