I love this book, and was very excited to read this to one of my baby storytime groups just recently where it was well received by all.  In fact, the babies were so attentive to the book and I had never seen anything like it before for such an age group.

They’re Bright, Familiar and Children Love Them!

There is a children’s picture book author whose books stand out on the book shelves, literally, because they are bright and colourful.  Lucy Cousins books are familiar to children, especially the Maisy Books.

Personally I have never been the biggest fan of Maisy, however when this book jumped out at me…the bright colours and size largely responsible, I saw Maisy and the story she had to tell from a completely new perspective. So, today’s post is me sharing with you why this book has changed my view.

Wipe-Clean First Phonics

As I have mentioned before I am not normally one to suggest formal learning before school, learning for preschoolers should be done in a way that is and feels like play rather than learning. However, when Hachette Australia sent me this First Phonics book I thought it would be a wonderful resource for the 3 year old and above age group, particularly if they are going to 3 year old Kinder.
