Cute, but not the best Maisy book.
on February 22, 2007
The positives: There are bright and colorful illustrations that Lucy Cousins does best in her Maisy stories. The stickers are incorporated in the story which makes it a good "teachable moment" for your preschooler. (Meaning, your child has to find the sticker and place it in the appropriate spot.) The paperback book was not too expensive so it made for a nice Valentine's Day gift!
The negatives: Unfortunately, this is a "one-time" kind of story. The story asks you to "Put on Maisy's apron." or "Find a mirror for Ostrich." These instructions for sticker placement could have been written a little better so that when we read it over and over again the story would make sense after the stickers were put on the page.
All in all, my 2-year old daughter loves the book and she likes to look at the stickers she put on the pages by herself. To her, she got a great gift and that's all that matters really!
