KIRKUS REVIEW

Maisy greets the arrival of spring with a jaunt through the countryside. Presented as “A Maisy First Science Book,” Cousins’s latest offering encourages toddlers and preschoolers to become active explorers and observers of the natural world around them. Each spread features a lively vignette, rendered in the customary vibrant primary hues favored by Cousins, depicting Maisy investigating an intriguing wonder. As Maisy explores everything from a hatching egg to a slimy snail trail, readers become active participants in the story, with easy-to-manipulate tabs and simple search-and-find sidebars that invite a thorough inspection of the illustrations. The winning combination of the familiar character, the trademark illustrations and the hands-and-eyes-on fun of the tale makes this a welcome and invigorating addition to any toddler/preschool science bookshelf. (Picture book. 2-5)
