Lets us find out what Maisy mouse likes best. What are her favorite toys, her favorite animals, her favorite clothes and her favorite things?

Four mini board books present Maisy’s favorite things, each book showing twenty favorites using an illustration and a word on every sturdy, colorful page. Maisy loves to play with her rubber duck and her guitar in “Maisy’s Favorite Toys.” In “Maisy’s Favorite Animals” she feeds a duck and rides a horse. “Maisy’s Favorite Clothes” shows the fashionable mouse dressed in her stripped swimsuit and in a pirate costume. And, last but not least “Maisy’s Favorite Things” shows this very popular little white mouse reading a book and making gingerbread men.

Not only will little children love to look at these cunning little books, but they can also stack and play with them. Simple words shown with an illustration in each case will help children begin the journey down the road of word recognition.
