Gotten this range of Walker books, A Maisy storybook by Lucy Cousins, from a bookstore at Tan Tock Seng hospital while visiting my uncle few weeks back. Interestingly, women can shop for anything at anytime, anywhere possible. Bring me to a 7-11 and I am very sure that I can come out from the store with many stuff. Haha… 😉 Alright back to the subject. This is a series of stories about a little mouse Maisy and her friends. I had only managed to purchase 7 titles out of 10. The reasons why I had chosen these books for the duo were:

1) The story is easy to read and simple to comprehend with little suspension or anticipation. This will really keep the kids to be real attentive and arouse their interest at the same time.

2) Prints are big enough for the young readers. For Maisy, I like that the sentences are on a separate page as the illustrations. This is great for storytime while the kids can just focus on the illustrations.

3) I love the colourful and interesting illustrations. Lucy Cousins’s lovely drawings with thick black outlines allow the kids to pick up drawing the pictures from the book easily. The vibrant colours can definitely capture the kids’ attention.

Happy to see that Darian enjoyed listening to these stories and loved looking at the illustrations. He would want me to read up to five titles at one go and even repeat on his favourites. 🙂
