Maisy's Wonderful Weather Book(2011)

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Lucy Cousins writes and illustrates Maisy’s Wonderful Weather Book(2011 Edition). It is part of Maisy First Science Book series. Infants, toddlers, plus preschool and elementary children love the colorful mouse, Maisy. She has many adventures as she learns about weather concepts.

In Maisy's Wonderful Weather Book, Maisy opens the curtains and sees the sun. The weather is not only sunny, but also warm. She goes to the beach.

As the children turn the 14 pages, they view different types of weather. Clouds are in the sky, therefore it is cloudy. Later, it is raining during a thunderstorm. Water is falling; thunder is flashing in the sky. On a windy day, the kite and leaves are blowing in the wind. There are snowfall and rainbow scenes.

The board book is a combination of lift-the flaps, pull-the-tabs and spin-the-wheels. Children love the interactive novelty book. The activities keep kids' interest while they learn about weather concepts.

Maisy’s Wonderful Weather Book introduces weather concepts. Have toddler/kindergarten students look out window and describe the weather; draw a picture of their observations.

The weather symbols in Lucy Cousins’ book are like ones on television weather broadcasts. Watch the broadcasts together. Point out symbols. Ask the children, what does the symbols mean? Beware they will start reporting the weather daily.

Help toddler/preschool kids with their reading skills. Teach words in a sentence are read from left to right. Sentences are read from top of the page to the bottom. Familiarize them with the front and back of books. Teach children to start reading from the front. And, to turn the following pages, one by one, until they reach the last page.
