Review: Maisy's World of Animals

It's so lovely when two loves are combined--Maisy and pop-ups ... I'm not a toddler and even I was clapping my hands in glee!

Part of Maisy First Science Book series, this adorable book features a slew of animals set in various parts of the world from the Arctic to the mountains, ocean, desert, savannah, jungle and south pole.

Each double page spread is a splash of bright action with a sidebar introducing kids to the variant animals to be found in each setting.

A pull tab or lift-the-flap then has monkeys swinging, goats butting heads, meerkats popping up, and in the final adorable scene, penguins revealing their babies beneath wings.

This is a must-have for Maisy lovers--and anyone who loves colour, movement and fun [ie: kids].
