Maisy's First Clockby Lucy Cousins
It's eight o'clock, time to get up -- and check on Maisy! With this delightful clock book, preschoolers can follow their favorite mouse throughout the day -- a day much like their own -- while learning the basics of telling time on a sturdy clock with movable hands. What's more, little readers can help Maisy with some very important decisions, by choosing from bright, simple illustrations of familiar objects labeled by name. What will she wear? What will she play with in the park? What ingredients does she need to bake cookies? What will she bring with her to bed? For preschoolers ready to learn about time -- or just to have a great time -- Maisy's First Clock is a sure bet for hours of fun.
Don't be late for toddlers' beloved rodent heroine as she learns to tell time.
Maisy demonstrates a growing independence as she dresses herself, shops for groceries, eats, plays and washes before bed during specific times of day. The audience gets a voice throughout, as they're invited to express their preference for Maisy's outfit or the ingredients needed for baking afternoon cookies. There's directness in the question-and-answer format. "What will Maisy take to bed? / Drink, slippers, book, Panda!" This large, sturdy reissue encourages individual perusal, and the bold, open design supports group participation. Cousins' trademark wobbly lines and solid primary colors are youthfully inspired in traditional Maisy fashion. An imposing cut-out clock, complete with thick, movable plastic hands, remains a secure fixture suited for individual exploration. A dotted clock design on each page pinpoints how the time should read. Maisy's beloved stuffed panda tags along on these slight outings, seen riding in her wagon or holding the sponge during soapy bath time.
No better time than the present to follow Maisy in this well-executed concept outing.(Board book. 2-4)
