Maisy Goes on a Nature Walk

Candlewick. (Maisy First Experiences). Apr. 2022. 32p. Tr $14.99. ISBN 9781536224245.
PreS-K–Maisy and her friends Tallulah, Charlie, Cyril, and Eddie are back for an adventure al fresco. The animals gather to walk in nature and examine the various ecosystems of the local park. The first stop is the pond, which is teeming with critters and plant life both above and below the surface. Beyond the pond lies a forest and a wildflower garden, full of shy deer, tweeting birds, and busy insects that Maisy and her crew take time to study and observe. And after a long walk, the group takes a well-deserved respite to create a play fort and have a picnic. This next installment in the “Maisy First Experiences” series uses a familiar formula that consistently works for young readers. Cousins knows her audience well, and fills the text with preschool-perfect observational questions, animal sounds, and enthusiastic dialogue; her classic illustrative style is perennially recognizable and captivating to little eyes.
VERDICT Maisy’s next adventure introduces early STEM concepts in an entertaining package. A must for most collections.–
