Maisy goes to preschool by Lucy Cousins

Walker Books, 2009.
(Ages 3-5) Recommended. Maisy has such a good time at preschool. She learns how to read her name when she hangs up her coat on a hook labelled 'Maisy'. She has a wonderful time with her friends making brilliant paintings; enjoys fruit and muffins at little lunch and listens to a story. After a refreshing nap, they all make loud music with the musical instruments, dig in the sandpit and play on the outdoor equipment. All in all, they have a very good day.
The vivid colours that are a Cousins' trademark reinforce the happy nature of the preschool experience. Children will have lots of fun looking at the expressions on the animals' faces and have a giggle when the animals go to the toilet.
Another book in the Maisy First Experiences series, reading this title to young children will be a welcome introduction to preschool for parents and caregivers. Maisy is obviously very happy with her friends and the teacher Mr Peacock so this makes it a very useful book to reinforce the fun that can be had at preschool.
