Welcome everyone! Come and join us. We are going to explore Maisy's world. Among other things we are going to go into Maisy's house, we are going to visit a farm, we are going to meet Maisy's best friends, we are going to go out into the garden with Maisy, we are going to go to the beach with Maisy, and much more.

In each of the places that we go we are going to learn some wonderful words. There are also flaps to lift and to look under. For example when we join Maisy in the kitchen to cook we can open the oven door to see what Maisy is cooking inside. Mmmm! She is making some jam tarts. And then there are three pages of kitchen words to explore. Look here is a picture of Maisy's Panda holding a "knife" and "fork." Here is a "coffeepot" and here is a "cookbook."Best of all here is a plate of "jam tarts," which look as if they have just came out of the oven.

With more than three hundred words to explore and twenty five flaps to lift, this wonderful Maisy word book is sure to delight young children who are keen to be able to describe the world around them. With Maisy Mouse to be their guide, this is a book which little children will dip into again and again.
