Maisy Goes to the City by Lucy Cousins - ADVISABLE

Maisy Goes to the CityCousins, Lucy Maisy Goes to the City. Candlewick Press, 2011. $12.99.  PICTURE BOOK.  Maisy the mouse and Charley the alligator go to the city to meet up with their friend Dotty the donkey.  They experience traffic, see tall buildings and crowded sidewalks, and then go to a great toy store.  Plus, Maisy gets lost and then found--all in the same day.  This is a typical Maisy book.  But children love to see books with characters they already know, and this one is a safe bet for the youngest readers.   Pre-K – ADVISABLE.
