PreS-K-Maisy travels to her local library to find a book about fish and a quiet reading nook. During her search, the mouse sees other animals using the computer, making copies, and listening to music. While looking at the aquarium, she locates the book she was hoping to find. Just when Maisy is ready to settle down to read, her friends arrive for storyhour. This simple book presents the library as a fun, child-friendly place. Colorful illustrations and a familiar setting make it appropriate for early childhood programs as well as for one-on-one reading.-Kristen M.

Maisy loves books, and fancies some peace and quiet. Where bettter to spend the day than in the library?! The storyline had me rolling the aisles. * Library & Information Update *
Favorite characters and critters return in force! The lovable mouse and her entourage are back-in search of books, information and more-in Maisy Goes to the Library by Lucy Cousins.
