What did you like about the book?  Maisy and friends build Ella a new house in this board book with a variety of slides and wheels to manipulate.  Readers can move a wheel to dump out dirt and mix cement, slide roof tiles back and forth from a crane, and more.  The signature illustrations are filed with bright colors and expressive characters.  A fun addition to the Maisy series for little ones.  

Anything you didn’t like about it?   No

To whom would you recommend this book?  Fans of Maisy will enjoy this adventure as will readers who like books with manipulatives to maneuver.  Hand it to readers who are interested in construction.

Where would you shelve it?  Board Books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this at the top of our “to read” piles?  No
