What's the Time, Maisy?
is a very sweet, gentle introduction to telling the time with Lucy Cousins
' epony-mouse. Join Maisy as she embarks on a fun-packed day full of everyday tasks: brushing her teeth; going shopping; eating lunch; making cakes. All Maisy's activities happen on the hour to help your little one get to grips with the fundamentals of telling the time--what a clever little mouse.
This larger than life book is fitted with a chunky clock with sturdy moving hands. The clock itself is bright green and is helpfully based on a 12 hour model, rather than the more complicated 24 hours. The hands can be moved by even the most chubby-handed beginner and as they twist they move an array of coloured cogs, making a loud rackety sound that will appeal to youngsters--although their parents may not be so keen after a little while.
This sturdy book is illustrated with beautiful simplicity in the familiar bright block colours of Maisy's world, and as well as teaching the time, the simple tale with its everyday activities, objects and words makes it an ideal early-reader book. --Victoria McKenzie
Not suitable for children under 36 months, due to small parts.
