‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Dick Bruna
Age Range: Under_5
This is the first ‘Miffy’ story published in 1963. An angel visits Mother and Father Bunny to tell them of Miffy’s impending arrival. They also receive a visit from a cock, hen and cow to see the new baby. Miffy has unmistakable similarities with the traditional Christmas story that many children will be familiar with.
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. Bruna’s illustrations are dominated by strong primary colours perfectly catching the intensity of emotion experienced by young children, and the familiar rhyming text is ideal for listening to and joining in.
