Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Maisy and her other animal friends visit a museum where they first see the bones of a dinosaur and fossilized eggs. Each page features things of interest as they tour the museum. The animals see a vintage car, an antique bicycle, and a double-decker bus. Next, they discover old toys, bugs, and statues of animals. Then the friends get to draw, play with puppets, and dress up in the costume room. All of the fun concludes with a lunch at the museum cafe. One of a series of "Maisy" books, this title is a good introduction for young children in understanding the purpose of a museum. They should gain knowledge of what an exhibit is, as the word is used throughout the story. The simple but informative format contains subjects that should appeal to the young and maintain their interest. The bold and bright illustrations make it easier for children two years and older to identify and enjoy the pictures. Reviewer: Vicki Foote

PreS-Gr 1

In this installment in the series, the mouse and her friends spend a rainy day at a natural history museum. On each spread, the familiar characters describe what they find in each exhibit. Cousins's flat-color gouache illustrations outlined in heavy black are friendly and familiar for young children and the explanations of what one might find in a museum can spark interest. A few terms, such as "marvel," "vintage," and "exhibit," will have to be explained to the youngest listeners.-Lynne Mattern, Robert Seaman School, Jericho, NY
