Summary

Summary

Going to preschool is a lot more fun with a friend like Maisy to show you the ropes!

Preschool for Maisy means a day filled with friends and things to do, from the time she hangs her coat on a special peg to the time she says good-bye. There's painting and snack time, stories and nap time (and a bathroom break in between). Soon everyone's ready to haul out the instruments and make some noise, then head outside for a turn at the sandbox or slide. In a bright, full-size storybook full of familiar scenes, this child-friendly look at a day in the life of a preschooler is one that newcomers and seasoned pros alike will be happy to share.


Author Notes

English children's book author/illustrator Lucy Cousins was born on February 10, 1964. She studied at Canterbury College, received a BA Honours in Graphic Design from The Faculty of Arts and Architecture, Brighton Polytechnic, and earned a postgraduate degree from the Royal College of Art.

Cousins is best known for creating the popular Maisy mouse character for preschool children. Her first book was published not long after she finished college, and Maisy even has her own successful television show.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Maisy is confident and acquainted with the routines of preschool. She clearly has no separation issues. She hangs up her coat, joins in making music, listens to a story, and so on. Throughout the day, the young mouse and her friends have a good time. As always, Cousins's bright color illustrations are simple and appealing. The solid black lines around objects help them to stand out on the page, drawing children's attention. Reassuring and fun.-Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ (c) Copyright 2010.
