Letters from Maisy by Lucy Cousins
Letters from Maisy

5 out of 5 stars


Maisy is going on a vacation, and she sends letters to all her friends describing the places she has seen and sending little gifts to her neighbors back home. Every other page has an envelope pocket with a letter and a small paper gift.

Maisy shops at an outdoor market and sends a beautiful paper fan to her friend, Ella. The book includes a real paper fan for the reader!
Maisy goes on a river safari, and sends Eddie a search-and-find game with animals from the jungle. The reader can play the game too!
Maisy rides a carousel, and sends a paper horse to her friends Tallulah. A sturdy paper horse is included with the letter in the book pocket for the reader to play with too.
The book even includes a REAL postcard for the reader to mail to a friend.
Each of the letters and gifts are made with sturdy, thick paper, which is perfect for little people who tend to tear everything. Hunting in the envelopes for the letters and little treasures is what makes this book so special!

I love the crayon art style and how simple the artwork is. It’s just right for little readers, with lots of bright colors to capture their attention. This book is so cute!
