Miffy the Artist
by Dick Bruna
Age Range: Under_5
Ever since Dick Bruna first created Miffy in 1955 she has become one of the best-loved children's characters of all time endearing her to generations of young children. In this charming story, Miffy visits an art gallery and is inspired to become an artist herself. Looking at the colours and shapes of everything around her she discovers what fun it can be to create pictures of the things she sees. By the time she goes to bed that evening her walls are full of her wonderful pictures.
The strong primary colours and Miffy’s use of shapes as she draws squares and triangles will help with colour recognition as well as give children ideas for creating their own drawings. They may also be tempted to create their own gallery too just like Miffy. The pefect book for budding artists.
