I’ve made no secret of the fact that Ben is a seriously reluctant writer. In fact he told me just last month “Mum, one day I’m going to have to tell Miss Earle that I really don’t like writing” which really made me laugh – as though if she realised how much he hated it, she would just stop him from having to do it!
His school report made it very clear that his poor presentation detracts from the quality of his written work and this is something we’re really going to have to work on. I’m keen to encourage him to develop his colouring skills – as, if he can master colouring in neatly and therefore his pencil control, this should have a significant impact on his handwriting and presentation in general. I want him to develop a sense of pride in his work rather than just a need to get stuff done quickly so he can move onto the fun things . . .
With that in mind, when I was offered the new Burgerworld Colouring book, with it’s bold, wacky illustrations I knew it was going to appeal to Ben.
This book is not your average colouring book, it is jam-packed with the down right bizarre characters and doodles created at the hands of Jon Burgerman.
