Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-In Doctor Maisy, the little mouse and Nurse Tallulah take care of a sick Panda, "Oh, no. Panda has a fever." When Maisy and Tallulah bump into one another, the nurse has to bandage the doctor's sore nose. In Morning on the Farm, Maisy milks the cow, "Squish squish, squirt squirt"; feeds the pigs and chickens; and then has her own breakfast. Toddlers will be attracted by Cousins's bright, friendly illustrations and simple texts. These two titles are sure to be popular with Maisy fans everywhere.

From Booklist

Reviewed with Lucy Cousins' Maisy's Morning on the Farm.

Ages 2-4. Maisy, the friendly little rodent now seen on TV, stars in two little stories. Kids will these enjoy the simple, though slight tales and the brilliantly colored illustrations. In Doctor, Maisy dons a white coat and ministers to Panda with stethoscope and thermometer. Morning shows Maisy at work on the farm: driving a tractor; feeding the chickens, pigs, and sheep; and milking the cow. According to copyright information, the books are based on a Maisy audio-visual series, and the gouache paintings are "illustrated in the style of Lucy Cousins." The derivation of books won't matter to little ones, though. They'll simply enjoy revisiting an old friend. Carolyn Phelan

If your child loves Maisy books as much as mine does, definitely add this one to your collection! Not only are the pictures colorful and inviting, but it also makes going to the doctor seem fun and exciting! Plus, it's always great to see Maisy and her friends playing different roles and doing fun things! Each page brings delight to my child's eyes!

**Spoiler Alert** (some one asked, and I'm happy to comply)

Let's face it. Any Maisy book is going to be pleasing to it's target audience of toddlers and preschoolers. The artwork is bright and kid-friendly, the characters interesting. So when you 'pass judgment' on one of the books it more or less has to be in context of the whole collection.

As far as "Doctor Maisy" I thought it was good without being stellar. Basically what happens is that Maisy plays Hospital with Tallulah. Maisy is the doctor and Tallulah is a nurse. The parts I really like are where Tallulah puts the stethoscope on Maisy's chest and Maisy does the same to a toy panda. Maisy think it tickles and she 'hears' panda's heart go 'thump, thump'.

Then it's discovered that panda has a temperature, and Maisy takes him upstairs for a rest in bed. I think these activities are valuable and could be used to remind very young children what is going to happen at their next wellness checkup and that hearts have a job -- that they pump blood. (It's too bad they use an oral thermometer instead of one that goes in the ear. But that's a minor point.)

What I liked less was the ending where Tallulah shouts out for Maisy while she is upstairs and she then races down the stairs where she bumps into her friend. I mean, what's the point of that?!? Perhaps a lesson in taking the stairs slowly, but it seems out of place with the 'hospital' theme. In any case, Tallulah wraps Maisy's nose with a bandage and that's the end of the book. (meh)

Overall, an entertaining book, but not one of the best "Maisy's" in my opinion.

Our 3 year old loves the Maisy series. He looks forward to any of his "Lucy Cousins" books. The pictures are super colorful and the words are simple. They are good books to read often since children can begin to memorize the words and anticipate the story. A good step in reading development. Also the books are appropriate and don't have negative elements, for example characters hitting each other or being rude to their parents. It is amazing how many books out there contain characters that are rude, disobedient or hurtful.

I got this book for a little girl I babysit who is turning two to go with some other toys, particularly a "vet" set with a stethoscope and other medical tools. I wanted something to teach her about the doctor, give her positive associations, and perhaps suggest some ways she could use her new toys to play with her stuffed animals and dolls. I think this book is great for all three. My only concern is that the pages will quickly get torn or bent, but they are made of a nice, thick paper that I hope will hold up to the handling of a toddler.

My 2-year-old daughter loves Maisy books, and this one is another great hit with her. She is now not afraid of the doctor after reading this book! Very cute.

let me start by saying we love maisy! we have a million of her books, but this one is LAME. pages: tallulah checks maisy's heart, maisy checks panda's heart, mais takes panda's temperature, maisy carries pandar upstairs, maisy puts panda to bed, maisy runs back downstairs, maisy crashes into tallulah, tallulah wraps maisy's nose, and everyone is better. upon a nervous toddler's visit to the doctor for a checkup, i really wanted something about what a doctor's visit would look like-- yes the heart check and temperature taking, but also getting weighed and measured, or looking into their eyes and ears, checking their reflexes maybe, and possibly even getting a shot (you can always skip over that page if need be)... and then she gets a sticker or lollipop at the end. that would have been a better doctor maisy book. this whole side story of running down the stairs "not too fast maisy!" and crashing, and then being bandaged up by a friend didn't really cut it.
