Maisy is the best character ever developed for young children. From the DVDs to the board books to the pull-out books, my 2 y.o. can't get enough of Maisy. We found Maisy on a trip to Slovenia in 2003 (known as Minka), and we were overjoyed to find her here at home in the US.

MAISY BIG MAISY SMALL doesn't disappoint. It is a large, colorful, simple to understand and enjoyable book. It presents opposites ("Maisy tall....Maisy short", etc.) - with Maisy as the main character and her friends joining in.

The only reason I didn't add a fifth star is that my little one LOVES the pull-tab books of Maisy, so her interest was lost in the book a little sooner than with other Maisy books (of course, this was after reading it every night for more than two weeks and then sporadically after that).

Again, it is a large lap book. The colors are invigorating. The scenes are delightful. Not much reading required. Older infants and toddlers will most certainly gravitate to this book because of its color, and fun and simply-drawn characters.

My daughter (2-1/2) absolutely LOVES Maisy, and this has been one of her favorites. We end up stopping for at least 2 minutes on the "Maisy Everything" page, playing a game where she asks me what I see and I say, "Mommy sees... an OCTOPUS! (or Maisy's bed, or a banana, or whatever)" - my daughter has fun finding MY chosen item, and then she says "Mallory sees a...(something else)" and I find what SHE has picked. Lots of color, great way to learn opposites. Not a story per se, but still tons of fun.

By K. Wight on August 22, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Great book - pages are sturdy, it's nice and long (25 pairs of opposites), and there are some more unique opposites (e.g. "fluffy" and "spiky"). Illustrations are bold and creative. Love it!!
