My daughter chose this book from her school library because, in her words, 'I liked the book. I liked that there was a cat in it and the bus and the mouse person and her uniform that she is wearing.'

I think the illustrations are colourful, simple and appealing to young children. The illustrations also incorporate shapes and things that a young reader will recognise, eg heart shapes, squares, flowers, different animals and a rainbow.

The text's font is a 'fun' font, not the standard Times New Rom
Good for toddler through beginning readers

Love the Maisy books. Bright colors and bold drawings keep the eye of the young child. The words are simple, but tell a story.

These books are good for read aloud to little ones, and then those same little ones can use them as easy readers because the pictures also tell the story.

Love the fact that Cousins uses the comma properly in nouns of direct address!!
Who doesn't love Maisy? I don't think I've come across a book about her that I didn't like. This a great book, very simple that includes counting up to five. With the different (English) names for Maisy's friends, it also provides opportunities for new vocabulary. If you use this for a storytime, it's easy to pair with the song "The Wheels on the Bus"!
This wasn't my favorite Maisy book because the subject wasn't as fun as some of the others. I liked that different characters were picked up at each stop, and that the stops were numbered makes it a bit of a counting book. It would be more fun for us if we used the bus.

1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up recommends Maisy Goes to Playschool, but the Maisy book we found first (and the favorite of my toddler boys) was Maisy Drives the Bus
This is a very simple book perfect for preschool-age children. It's bright colored illustrations even captured the attention of my 5-month-old baby :)
This is a good book for children that are learning numbers or how to read. It is repetitive and simple enough for kids to figure out.

This is a simple story of animals boarding a bus one at a time. And you guess who comes next.
My daughter loves Maisy, and this is my favorite Maisy book because it's short and teaches numbers.
Of the Maisy books in our collection, this one is probably the most tedious to read.
Highly recommended by Cole & Harper. I love the vibrant illustrations by Lucy Cousins.
lots of "hi" and animals so perfect for toddlers.
