Lucy Cousins’ Maisy Goes Swimming is a flap and tab book. Beginning readers love this type of book. Infants, toddlers and young elementary children love moving the tabs and flaps. This board book gives a fun story along with the activity for kids between two and five-years-old.
Maisy is a mouse. She decides to take a swim at the local pool. Kids travel with her and helps Maisy undress for the swim.
Preschool and early elementary children take off Maisy’s blue hat and scarf. Next, her brown boots come off. The red coat follows the brown boots.
The infants and toddlers board book is a great tool for children to learn the names of different articles of clothing. Also, children learn to identify colors and their name. Since children at this age have a short attention span, the tabs and flaps will keep their attention on the book as they listen to the words.
The text on each page is the same color as the article of clothing. For example, if Maisy is taking off her blue hat and scarf, the text is blue. Brown text is for the brown boots.
Lucy Cousins’ Maisy Goes Swimming is the board book for the parents who are teaching their child colors and names of clothing. The story is simple and fun. What child does not like to swim or play in water?
Maisy, the mouse, is happy. She has a bright smile. Children will want to help the mouse prepare for her swim.
You do not have to buy now, just put Maisy Goes Swimming in your shopping cart for now.
