Tiny the Treefrog makes a colourful return
Childhood staple Tiny the Treefrog is back on bookshelves with a new colouring book.
Tiny’s Bermuda Colouring Book, was designed to give children a new way to interact with the popular cartoon character.
Elizabeth Mulderig, the author and artist, said: “I am an artist and loved colouring as a child. Still do, as a matter of fact.
“So a Tiny colouring book seemed much overdue, especially one that shows Bermuda off by land and by sea.”
Mrs Mulderig said as well as giving children an artistic outlet, the book also included questions to add educational value.
She said: “At the bottom of each page there is a question pertaining to the illustration and a line for the child to write the answer.
“The questions ask about numbers, shapes and letters. This idea of having an interactive book was tested out two years ago on my book of manners, Bum Bum Bananas — Oh! Do Mind Your Manners.
“Because I received so much positive feedback from parents concerning this book — a school in the States ordered a few hundred of them to use for anti-bullying purposes — I have decided to make most of my work going forward include an element of teaching.”
The back page of the book also includes a historical explanation of the various sights in Bermuda. She added: “Teachers in Bermuda really like this as it’s a fun way to teach children about the island.”
