Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The work never seems to end on a farm. Maisy drives the tractor in the fields, feeds the chickens and feeds the pigs. At least the sheep are on their own¾they can munch on the grass. The cow, however, does need to be milked and all of this activity takes place before Maisy eats her own breakfast. Whew, morning sure is a busy time on Maisy's farm. Cousins' bright, simple illustrations fill the pages in another offering that Maisy fans will enjoy. 2001, Candlewick Press, $9.99 and $3.29. Ages 1 to 3. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot<%ISBN%>0763616109

PreS-In Doctor Maisy, the little mouse and Nurse Tallulah take care of a sick Panda, "Oh, no. Panda has a fever." When Maisy and Tallulah bump into one another, the nurse has to bandage the doctor's sore nose. In Morning on the Farm, Maisy milks the cow, "Squish squish, squirt squirt"; feeds the pigs and chickens; and then has her own breakfast. Toddlers will be attracted by Cousins's bright, friendly illustrations and simple texts. These two titles are sure to be popular with Maisy fans everywhere.-Kathy M.

Kirkus Reviews
Cousins's lovable pink-whiskered mouse returns in a charming, bucolic tale. Maisy greets the day diligently doing her morning chores around the barnyard. Preschoolers get a glimpse of a farmer's life as Maisy bustles about tending to her animals. As always, the topic, while simply presented, piques a preschooler's interest. Readers discover that farm animals want their breakfast too-chickens gobble up corn, sheep graze in the grass, pigs eat at their trough, and even the cows are milked before Maisy settles down to her own repast. The brief tale works well for both ends of the pre-k spectrum: toddlers will delight in recognizing familiar farm animals while older readers will be fascinated by the origins of the milk in their cereal bowls. Vividly colored, full-page illustrations accompany the text. The zippy pictures feature brilliant background hues in neon orange fire-engine red, as well as Cousins's familiar chunky figures. A surefire pleaser for the many fans of the popular TV show and book series. (Picture book. 2-5)
