‘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
Part of the Miffy’s Classic Story Library published to celebrate 50 years of the Miffy stories. Together with Miffy and the New Baby, in which Miffy comes to terms with the idea of a new sibling, these books deal with sensitive issues in a child’s life.
In Miffy’s Garden the little rabbit discovers how satisfying hard work can be, and the rewards it brings. Miffy experiences the pleasure of gardening for the first time and learns how do flowers grow.
Dick Bruna’s illustrations perfectly catch the intensity of emotion experienced by young children, and the familiar rhymed translation provides a memorable text for listening to and joining in. Excellent additions to the library of lovely little books about this universally loved character.
