The Lovereading4Kids comment
No child need feel anxious about sports day with Maisy there to introduce it. Maisy and her friends are very excited about sports day, and no wonder, it’s great fun with all sorts of races and games, and a chance for everyone to compete. Eddie the elephant drops his egg in the egg and spoon race, but he helps his team win the tug of war! As always, Lucy Cousins’ strong, simple colours are enormously satisfying to the eye and her quirky sense of humour – watch out for that crocodile playing quoits! – will keep readers giggling. ~ Andrea Reece
Maisy's Sports Day by Lucy Cousins
And they're off! Maisy and her friends all join in for sports day fun and Ostrich referees - there is a red team and a blue team. The competitions include an egg-and-spoon race, a wheelbarrow race, a sack race, a relay race, a three-legged race and even a get-dressed-up-silly race! Loud cheers of support are coming from the sidelines, and a quick refreshment stop is needed! Plenty of fun is also had playing the hula hoop, quoits and the tug-of-war, where everybody falls down laughing! So much excitement with winners and losers, but everyone gets a medal in the end. An ideal first book to help little ones prepare for a day filled with sporting activities. It's more fun with Maisy!
