Maisy Bakes a Cake (Picture Book)



Released March 2009

www.candlewick.com

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Lucy Cousins takes preschoolers into the kitchen as she invites them to follow along with Maisy as she prepares a mouthwatering cake. Your child will learn a little about weighing and measuring, adding and mixing and baking and decorating as he or she helps the little white mouse make this special dessert.

This clever novelty picture book invites the young reader to help Maisy by pulling tabs to prepare the cake and open cupboards to find where the cake ingredients are stored. As you gently pull the tabs, you'll help Maisy wash her hands, weigh some flour, stir in the eggs, and sift powered sugar for the frosting. Open the final page and there will be Charley the alligator popping a slice of cake into his mouth!

After this "dry" run with Maisy, you might want to take your child into your own kitchen for a real "hands-on" experience.
