We’ve talked about our love of Maisy Mouse around here before. In our house, we love this simple, yet bold little creature and have enjoyed reading many of her stories.
My son began enjoying Maisy when he was just around two years old and we still enjoy a good visit with Maisy every now and again. Therefore I was delighted to discover that Candlewick Press had some “First Experience” books with this lovable little mouse and her pals.
In Maisy Goes to the Library Maisy is off to find some book about fish. (So far, so good. We completely identified with this!) Maisy is looking both for information and a quiet place to read her book but she is constantly interrupted by her friends who are finding silly books to make faces at, and, of course, by story time! This book is a great way to explore the many benefits to exploring the local library with your youngster.
I was particularly excited to see Maisy, Charley, and the Wobbly Tooth because we haven’t yet experienced this natural phenomenon of having our baby teeth fall out. My son listened to this story of Charley the Alligator’s wobbly tooth in rapt attention. Afterward he asked me all kinds of questions about what this experience would be like for him. I was so glad to have a copy of this book to talk through what it’s like to have one’s baby teeth fall out. It prompted good conversation and hopefully his fear factor will be at a minimum with the help of a little bit of prep work à la Maisy Mouse!
Still finding reasons to enjoy Maisy Mouse!
Thanks, Candlewick, for supplying us with such a fun friend to journey early life stages with!
