Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Simple stories for fans of the busy mouse. In the first book, Maisy's friend Charley helps her tidy up her house and is rewarded with a cupcake, while in the second, Maisy learns just how much is needed to quench the thirst of an elephant. In both titles the bright, colorful illustrations face a page of large-print text. Delightful books that will help reinforce the concepts of helping and sharing.

This is a great book, and there are so many Maisy books to choose from.

So if you're used to the hard-cover library Maisy books, this will seem quite brief.

The color and story of Maisy books are just right for a child of a young age. Each page is bright and creative. When reading this book to my nephew, (who is less than 1 year old), and seeing his mother reading it to him, there was something about this particular book that made him smile above any other book read to him. In fact, every Maisy book brought on a smile. Other books didn't make him smile so widely.
There were even pages he seemed to love more than others. Perhaps he found the name Maisy to be funny or the colorfull pages with animals was cute to him. He can't tell me exactly what it is he loves about it, because he is too young to tell me, but the smiles and laughs says it all.
This is a great book, and there are so many Maisy books to choose from. If reading to a child about cleaning as this one is, isn't good enough then there are plenty of other Maisy books to choose from. However, this one in particular made him smile more than ever. I recommend this book, and so does my nephew. :D
I am sure someday he will be reading these books out loud as he learns.

My 2-year-old daughter adores Maisy. We have many of these books, and I read a couple of them during our bedtime routine. My daughter also loves flipping through some of the books and "reads" them to herself.
This one in particular, though, is not a favorite; my daughter never chooses this one, and there isn't much of a reaction when I read it to her. And, I must say, the "plot" is even more nonsensical than usual for Maisy books. It just seems random. And, evidently, my daughter feels the same way! The bedtime one is the best one, according to my daughter.

Great Maisy book.

Only thing is, these very inexpensive ones are also VERY short. So if you're used to the hard-cover library Maisy books, this will seem quite brief. But... for a toddler, that's not a big deal. And the story is pretty cute, and introduces the concept of cleaning up the house.

Recommended.

This is a favorite Maisy of my daughters and it's always nice to have a book they like that is about cleaning up! I wanted to caution parents that it ends with eating cupcakes, which my kids love to read about, but if your kids get easily upset about not getting to have treats, it could be a hard book to read to them.

Yet another short and fabulous tale of our favorite female mouse. As always, love the bold colors, simple text, and realistic topic. All three of my kids have been big fans of the Maisy series, and here is yet another I would highly recommend!

My grand daughter loves these books and loves having them read over and over to her, then I change the characters name to her and her brothers names and cousins name and she gets a charge out of that!
