Miffy's Birthday Book Review

You must know by now that the classic bunny Miffy is turning 60 and I don't think it would be right if we didn't have a look at one of her books and what better book to have a peek at than one that celebrates this special rabbit's birthday.

Miffy's birthday was originally published in 1970 but of course it has been republished time and time again allowing us to continue her celebrations with her.

Written in large print, the rhyming sentences are still as wonderful to read as they were when they were first written for our reading pleasure. Dick Bruna's writing style is classic yet manages to slot into modern day with ease. 

I love being able to share the book with my kids as Miffy was a huge part of my own childhood.

The book includes brilliantly bright pictures so your child can pick out different objects and even begin to learn their colours as they turn the pages. 

Miffy celebrates her birthday just how I would, with presents to open, great food to eat and family surrounding her, the best way to enjoy such a special day. 

It is my youngest daughter's birthday in a couple of months so as we were reading I was asking her the type of gifts she'd like to receive, what she would enjoy eating for her birthday dinner. 

This 60th anniversary hardback addition can be purchased for £8.99, a worthwhile investment in my opinion.

I hope you'll be joining me in saying happy birthday to Miffy over the next few months.
