If you have little ones in your house, then you may know about Miffy, a television series that is based on the Miffy book series by Dutch artist Dick Bruna. My girls watch this show on Noggin as well as stream through some of the channels we have on our Roku. They can't get enough of Miffy, and I have to say, I am fond of this young rabbit and her friends, too.
Why do the girls and I love Miffy and Friends so much? For one, even the youngest of views will enjoy this stop-motion animated series, which only has a voice over narrative and not the characters speaking, which makes it enjoyable for kids to sit and watch, as if it was a storybook that was being read to them but brought to life. My girls have been watching Miffy and Friends for a years, and can't go a week without watching an episode. This popular television series also teaches important life lessons that are explained so little ones can understand, which as a parent I love seeing from a show.
My girls were so excited the other day when the mail came as they saw I received a few new Miffy books, which released recently from the folks at Simon & Schuster. They didn't even know there were Miffy books available, as we haven't seen any at our local bookstores. They were so happy to sit down and flip through the books, as they waited for me to come join them to read and enjoy together.
Savannah is working on reading, so these easy reader books were perfect for her. She loved being able to read a story to her little sister, and was quick to correct Bella who tried telling the story based on the illustration. I love watching Savannah read and feel confident in her reading when she finds a book she can read with ease. And, having it be a Miffy book was even more special, as she is big Miffy fan. So it was a win win all around with these new Miffy books.
My girls are so happy to have started a Miffy book collection, and can't wait to add more books to their collection. In the meantime though, they are enjoying having me read them at bedtime, or pulling them from the bookcase to flip through and enjoy the illustrations. FYI..Each of these books are based on episodes from the Miffy and Friends series, so if you have a Miffy fan in your house, then they have probably already seen the episode -- but, they will love having the book to read at bedtime...or anytime they need their Miffy fix. :-)
Here is more about the Miffy books we received, in case you want to pick up one or all of them to share with that special Miffy fan in your life.....
