While I have read a few “Maisy” books, I had no idea that there are over 100 books and a T.V. show with this character. With bold colors outlined in black, it is easy to see the appeal for toddlers and young children. In this particular book there are more than 40 flaps to lift, discover and learn from. Maisy is accompanied by a little flock of cute chicks while she helps little ones learn about a variety of subjects. From shapes and counting to noises, letters and animal homes, there is so much to learn and explore. At almost 8 months, my Little Lucy can’t quite navigate the paper flaps (without ripping them!). It will take an older toddler to carefully handle the pages but there is so much fun and learning to be had. Maisy activities, including some books to read online can be found at Maisy’s Fan Club.
