Our 5 for this week are all about Maisy, the loveable mouse! I found a set of 10 Maisy books in a lovely bag for only £9.99 at The Book People (I so love the bargains there!) So far, the girls are totally enraptured with the stories.
This is C’s favourite so far! We read it 5 times over breakfast this morning. Maisy is invited to a fancy-dress party and she ends up making her own costume.
In this story Maisy makes some gingerbread for her friends to come around and share. Yum.
Maisy goes to her friend Charley’s house for lunch, but his cupboards are bare! They have to cycle to the shops to get some delicious food to share.
This story is perfect for summer! Maisy and her friend Eddie run out of lemonade so they make some from the lemons growing on a tree in the garden.
All of these books are short, easy to memorise and about wonderfully everyday topics in the life of children. Cakie can retell her favourites already!
