Why We Love It
Infants love lift-the-flap books and Where is Maisy? is one of the best. Lovable Maisy appeals to young children and will have them coming back time and time again to hunt for her. Lucy Cousins’ books are filled with simple, bright illustrations and friendly animal characters. The Maisy lift-the-flap series stands the test of time. With two toddlers in my house, the flaps, though well worn, have remained attached unlike many other cheaper quality lift-the-flap books.
- Play peek a boo with your little one. Children at this stage are endlessly fascinated with people or objects seemingly appearing and disappearing. This can be as simple as playing with a scarf and holding it in front of your infant while asking “Where’s Sophie?”….drop the scarf and say “There you are!, I see you!” or “Where’s Mommy?….Here I am!”
