Do you have a young friend who likes to read, color, trace letters, and work paper puzzles? What do I mean by paper puzzles? Those would include mazes, word searches, and crossword puzzles. If you know a youngster who loves these things, then "Harry the Happy Mouse Activity Book" would be a perfect present.
Harry the Happy Mouse stars in the picture books by author n.g.k. He is beautifully drawn by Janelle Dimmett, who also did the illustrations for the activity book. The whimsical pictures perfectly illustrate author n.g.k.'s text about Harry and his friends.
Harry exists to show young children that kindness matters. He is a good example of kind living. Scattered throughout the activities are pictures of Harry and his friends interacting in positive ways.
The activities are simple and designed for ages 5 and up, although a younger or older child could certainly enjoy this book. The print is larger, mazes simpler, and word puzzles easier than the adult versions.
Oh, the coloring! Each page is a coloring sheet. Some are simple, while others show more complexity. They range from full-page pictures to small drawings to illustrate the activity pages. This adds interest to the activity book. None of the pages are presented as just a puzzle on a boring plain background. When a child gets through with the activity, there is always a super illustration to finish with the child's unique creativity.
Are you giving this book to a very young child, or do YOU enjoy coloring? The giver could do part of the coloring to make it a special gift. Do more than give this book; put your own stamp on it! A child will love the fact that you have taken your time to make it special for them.
