Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1 Sweet Maisy the mouse returns in familiar, primary-colored gouaches heavily outlined in black. In the first book, she gets ready for bed, finds her misplaced Panda, and, at the last minute, the pair remember to use the toilet. The second book is a real charmer. Maisy's pal Tallulah helps set up and repair a wading pool; then the girls team up with Eddie the elephant so that all three can cool off. Both titles show toddler-empowering vignettes; Maisy's Pool offers just enough plot and tension to appeal to rookie readers as well. Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

You can't go wrong with maisy!

This is a great story for a toddler bedtime; simple, short, sweet, and just interesting enough.

I've been reading to my son since he was first born, and he is now 5 1/2 months old. Out of all the books I've bought for him, he by far loves his Maisy books!! His eyes light up at the pictures, and he starts babbling (talking) to the book! My husband and I love reading them to him because the stories are so cute and easy to read. Thank god for Amazon because I haven't been able to find all of the books anywhere else. This book in particular is a life saver, because at night he often gets a little fussy and I read this to him before bedtime--it helps to calm him down!

If you have a reluctant toddler, Lucy Cousins' Maisy can help reinforce bedtime rituals and good habits. Maisy washes up, uses the potty and puts on pajamas. She even reads in bed - just like Mommy and Daddy read their child. Bright, clear pictures and soothing text make this our daughter's favorite go-to-sleep book.

Format: Paperback
If you are the parent of a young child, you probably know who Maisy is. She's a mouse with a duck, a squirrel, an elephant, and a crocodile for friends. Why the crocodile isn't trying to eat the others is beyond me, but that's life in Maisy's world.
Both of my daughters love the Maisy books; there's something about their simple stories and colorful pictures that even appeals to adults. The books are short and easy to read. But, the stories are never obnoxiously simplistic, like so many other books for small children.
This is great to read at bedtime, esspecially if you can convince your child to pretend they are Maisy going to sleep. Maisy's preparing for bed and her preparations include a trip to the potty. The first time you see that page, it's actually kind of funny. This is one of my daughters' favorite Maisy books.

Format: Paperback
I love this book because it's gotten my 2 year old son to brush his teeth and use the potty before bed. He won't use the potty most of the time but with Maisy as an example he is unusually willing. This book is cheap and underlines the bedtime rituals that most every toddler adheres to: washing up, pajamas, potty, turning off the light etc. My son loves saying goodnight to Maisy and holding on to his panda just like Maisy does.

Format: Paperback
Maisy is a mouse with her own television show on Nickelodeon. The show is done in a narrated style on the adventures of Maisy. The books are based on the Audio Visual Series.

Each book is based on a theme that carries over to the television show. On the left page is the text with the right page showing Maisy doing each task to prepare for bedtime.

Maisy has a toy panda that she likes to cuddle up with and the story starts with Maisy looking at the clock heading up the stairs with panda because they are sleepy and it is time for bed. Maisy wears a green jumper with a blue shirt.

Once Maisy is in her room she walks over to the window to draw the curtains, placing the panda on the windowsill. The owl is outside the window hooting, while we see the stars and the moon one last time before closing the curtains.

Maisy's Bedtime is a easy to follow format for any child to make part of their nightly routine. The similarities and routines for the mouse are the same for children of all ages. I think the only thing missing was going for the drink of water or milk like so many little ones do in stalling the inevitable bedtime.

The book has great vibrant colors that are the same as on the television show. Maisy has the pink ears and tail while Panda is black with the white tummy and face.

It would also be nice to have cassette tapes to go with the books so we could sing the Maisy song and hear the narrator's voice. Other than my two suggestions this is the perfect addition for the family library. Also the features of Maisy and the pictures are very easy to copy with my son drawing pictures of Maisy, plus we have the coloring book.

These books are FANTASTIC! My two and a half yr old has been enjoying this series since DAY ONE! No matter what maisy book, she loves it. This one is all about getting ready for bed, brushing teeth, using the potty and a special little teddy bear. These books rule. We've even bought them in italian versions because they are so appealing. The illustrations are perfectly suited to toddlers, bright, simple and cheerful!(I Love Them TOO! ) You can't go wrong with maisy!

Pointless drivel, no story, and seriously boring. I tried really hard to like these books - but they are poorly written and you think, "what was the point of that? I can tell a better story!" I read to my son every day and of all the different books, he enjoys the Boynton books and finds them funny.
