This is an excellent Maisy book. This edition is a small board type book with thick pages which are easily turned by little fingers. Only really suitable for pre school children.
This story features all the Maisy characters. There are 12 pages of text with the rest of the pages featuring some lovely illustrations. The story about a train journey with everyone waving hello to the geese, goat, rabbit, bird and butterfly they pass is bound to delight any child. The story helps very young children recognise animals and also teaches words like up, down, through and out by illustrating them so well on a train journey up hills, down valleys and through a tunnel.
There is also opportunity to make noises children love like "toot-toot" and "wheeeeeeeee".
Highly recommended. This book is better than the similar fire engine book.
I bought this for my baby boy but my 2 yr old daughter loves it more at the moment! This is kept in the car to keep either of them amused for a few minutes during various journeys. My daughter can often be heard "reading" it to her brother. A simple story with lots of lovely colour pictures.
Lovely colourful book, short statements - just right for around 12 months.. at 19 months our girls are losing interest in the story (too simple) but still like to turn the pages and point out the things they know the words for.
