Lucy Cousins not only writes the text, the author illustrates Maisy’s Amazing Big Book of Learning. She uses bright primary colors. Ms. Cousins outlines each object in black which helps toddlers to focus on them and their color. The font is black and large which young readers can see and read easily. Children in circle groups can easily see the pages since the picture book is oversized.
The basic concepts book is interactive, drawing the child into the learning experience. Maisy's Amazing Big Book of Learning has forty flaps for inquisitive fingers to lift and peek under. Kids love making the sounds of musical instruments and animals. Parents and preschool teachers can engage toddlers and young elementary students into conversation. Remember children love adults who listen to them.
