I really like these Maisy and friends First Experiences books. My son liked the bright colors of the illustrations, even though he was a bit fidgety for the story. Maisy the mouse and her friend Cyril the squirrel are going on vacation to the beach. They take the train there and build sand castles and play in the water. This book shows kids who may not have ever gone to the beach, or have gone for the first time a good glimpse of what they can do there. Recommended for ages 1-5, 4 stars.

Very similar to the other Masiy story books. Maisy and Cyril go on vacation. The story covers their trip and arrival to their destination, plus a little of what you do on a vacation. A great book to read before or after taking a child on vacation. They travel by train though, if I remember correctly, rather than plane.

I think this is a good book to have on your book shelf for students to read. It is a very simple and easy book for students to follow as they read. The book is very straight forward and can help children to gain a good foundation in terms of comprehension of text.

This is a solid addition to Lucy Cousins' Maisy books. In this one, Maisy and her friends go on vacation to the beach. The friends cover all the aspects of the beginning parts of the trip. It is a fine book that young children who are fans of Maisy will enjoy!

Lucy Cousins' loveable Maisy goes on vacation to the beach with her pal Cyril. The adventure begins with packing her suitcase, riding the train, playing on the beach and finally writing postcards to friends!

Fun! Maisy goes to vacation to the beach! and again she is not alone, she is with her friends having fun. Great for learning new words. Phonological awareness
Just how old is Maisy that she can take a train to the seashore, check into a hotel (with a boy!), and swim in the ocean without any grown-ups? Am I over-thinking this?

"Maisy Goes on Vacaton" is about the adventures of going on a beach vacation. Teachers can read this book to teach students new vocabulary and ask students about their vacation experiences.

Have finally picked up the Maisy books for my niece and now I know why they're so popular. Things That Go is the favorite so far, but I like the more story-oriented ones like this, too.

This is a great book to teach kids about traveling and packing and it is a fun read for them to know about going on vacation and of course Maisy is a fun character as well. :)
