Book Review - Struffel: Stuffel's Walk Stuffel's New Bed
Do children appreciate the joys of everyday life?
Whether it’s playing in the garden, in the warm Spring sun or enjoying a new bed, Struffel the little bear can help children be thankful for the little things in life.
Struffel is the star of Susan M. Maithya’s new children’s book, STRUFFEL, which includes two stories: “Struffel’s Walk” and “Struffel’s New Bed”. Travel to the garden to enjoy the Spring weather with Struffel and his friends or experience Struffel getting his first “big kid” bed as he grows big and strong.
STRUFFEL: “Struffel’s Walk” and “Struffel’s New Bed” serves as a communication tool for parents and grandparents and as an entertaining story for children, supported by detailed illustrations and relatable stories. Following the main character, Struffel, children will learn life lessons about everyday things. Parents and grandparents will have the chance to talk to their children about important life matters.
“Struffel is vital and useful for children, as it is enriched with different aspects a child will likely encounter in their daily life,” Maithya says. “The finely detailed illustrations are expressive and enhance children’s experiences of Struffel’s adventures.”
Struffel’s storyline is simple for children to understand and commit to memory for application in everyday life.

My Take on the Book
This was a fun and entertaining book that you and your kids will enjoy reading together. The story is engaging and your kids will love the fact that there are two stories in one book! The illustrations are great and my daughters loved the character of Struffel! This is definitely a book that is great for earlier readers, but parents will enjoy it as well!
