Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K–Maisy packs her suitcase, walks to the station, and travels by train with her friend Cyril. After spending a day by the ocean, they return to their hotel room to sleep, but not before writing postcards and reading a story. The text consists of short declarative sentences and has two simple questions that can be answered by using the bold, gouache illustrations. This book gives children a preview of what can happen when they leave home to go on vacation and turns apprehension into anticipation.Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada

I got this for my daughter 20 months old so she could have a reference for going away somewhere, traveling to get there, stay in a hotel and going to the beach.

It worked great! We were just on a beach trip and as a toddler, it was the first time we were away from home when she was cognizant of not being at HOME.

When we got to our hotel late at night, she stopped when she realized we were not in our apartment building, said "Home." and refused to keep walking. I said, we are in our hotel, it has beds, a potty and lots of nice food. Just like Maisy and Cyril when they go to a hotel. She got it and for the rest of the trip, whenever we were returning to our room or going to sleep at night, she would say "Hotelo Room" as she understood we were not home, but we were in a new place for a while.

We love Maisy, pretty much anything she's ever done in books or her DVD's, so it might be biased and might not be the best Maisy story ever, but I like it because it explains a unique situation like "vacations" in a way young kids can relate to more if you have a trip coming up. And if you are a Maisy fan, you'll read it even after the vacation is over : )

First of all, I must mention how impressed I am with the quality of Maisy paper back books. The quality of the paper of this paper back - so thick and smooth, is like that of a hard cover book! We love Maisy books, both board and paper. About this book, this is a sweet and simple story of maisy going on vacation taking a train with her friends to the beach. I liked the subtleties which are out dated now like maisy sending a post card to her friend, our kids may not get to do that at this time and age, let them at least read about it. This book may help kids reminiscence their past vacations and also look forward to or prepare them for future ones. Recommended age 2-6 yrs.

This Maisy story gets 5 stars, but the actual book only gets 4. The printer did a poor job cutting the pages during manufacturing. I had to use scissors to carefully separate many of the pages.

This is a great book to read before you go on an holiday. I just told my 24 month old daughter we are going for a vacation and she's cried out: "go hotel, like Maisy!"

My son loves these series of books. This softbound version is perfect. The colors are great. This story line was a little boring compared to some of the others.
