Cute Book but... 12 Jan. 2010
By aaa-Pam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
**Spoiler Alert** (some one asked, and I'm happy to comply)

Let's face it. Any Maisy book is going to be pleasing to it's target audience of toddlers and preschoolers. The artwork is bright and kid-friendly, the characters interesting. So when you 'pass judgment' on one of the books it more or less has to be in context of the whole collection.

As far as "Doctor Maisy" I thought it was good without being stellar. Basically what happens is that Maisy plays Hospital with Tallulah. Maisy is the doctor and Tallulah is a nurse. The parts I really like are where Tallulah puts the stethoscope on Maisy's chest and Maisy does the same to a toy panda. Maisy think it tickles and she 'hears' panda's heart go 'thump, thump'.

Then it's discovered that panda has a temperature, and Maisy takes him upstairs for a rest in bed. I think these activities are valuable and could be used to remind very young children what is going to happen at their next wellness checkup and that hearts have a job -- that they pump blood. (It's too bad they use an oral thermometer instead of one that goes in the ear. But that's a minor point.)

What I liked less was the ending where Tallulah shouts out for Maisy while she is upstairs and she then races down the stairs where she bumps into her friend. I mean, what's the point of that?!? Perhaps a lesson in taking the stairs slowly, but it seems out of place with the 'hospital' theme. In any case, Tallulah wraps Maisy's nose with a bandage and that's the end of the book. (meh)

Overall, an entertaining book, but not one of the best "Maisy's" in my opinion.

Doctor Maisy 10 Jan. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If your child loves Maisy books as much as mine does, definitely add this one to your collection! Not only are the pictures colorful and inviting, but it also makes going to the doctor seem fun and exciting! Plus, it's always great to see Maisy and her friends playing different roles and doing fun things! Each page brings delight to my child's eyes!

maisy doesn't actually go to the doctor, she "pretends play" doctor, and a lousy one at that 19 Feb. 2014
By Melissa W - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
let me start by saying we love maisy! we have a million of her books, but this one is LAME. pages: tallulah checks maisy's heart, maisy checks panda's heart, mais takes panda's temperature, maisy carries pandar upstairs, maisy puts panda to bed, maisy runs back downstairs, maisy crashes into tallulah, tallulah wraps maisy's nose, and everyone is better. upon a nervous toddler's visit to the doctor for a checkup, i really wanted something about what a doctor's visit would look like-- yes the heart check and temperature taking, but also getting weighed and measured, or looking into their eyes and ears, checking their reflexes maybe, and possibly even getting a shot (you can always skip over that page if need be)... and then she gets a sticker or lollipop at the end. that would have been a better doctor maisy book. this whole side story of running down the stairs "not too fast maisy!" and crashing, and then being bandaged up by a friend didn't really cut it.

Cute book, good for the little ones 5 Jan. 2013
By Ready2205 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this book for a little girl I babysit who is turning two to go with some other toys, particularly a "vet" set with a stethoscope and other medical tools. I wanted something to teach her about the doctor, give her positive associations, and perhaps suggest some ways she could use her new toys to play with her stuffed animals and dolls. I think this book is great for all three. My only concern is that the pages will quickly get torn or bent, but they are made of a nice, thick paper that I hope will hold up to the handling of a toddler.

Wonderful book and series for birth through 3 years and beyond! 17 Jun. 2013
By Seal Beach Teach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Our 3 year old loves the Maisy series. He looks forward to any of his "Lucy Cousins" books. The pictures are super colorful and the words are simple. They are good books to read often since children can begin to memorize the words and anticipate the story. A good step in reading development. Also the books are appropriate and don't have negative elements, for example characters hitting each other or being rude to their parents. It is amazing how many books out there contain characters that are rude, disobedient or hurtful.
