Praise For Maisy Goes to London: A Maisy First Experiences Book

The overall effect is jaunty and eye-catching. The text points out a feature or two on each page, but leaves plenty of details for kids to notice for themselves. Parents planning to take young children to London will appreciate this colorful picture book for its amiable cast of familiar characters and hit-the-high-spots approach to sightseeing.
